Cloudy Bay Chardonnay is one for connoisseurs and gastronomic adventurers: refined, poised and balanced. Painstakingly made using traditional techniques, it is a true ‘food wine’. Fruit from vineyards in the stony soils of Wairau Valley and the dense clay of the Southern Valleys work together to create a wine that marries ripe stone fruit and citrusy elegance.

Chardonnay 2020 taste description

The 2020 Chardonnay is a welcoming burst of warmth and intensity. The nose is immediately open and appealing, with notes of white peach, apricot, ripe citrus and warm hay. A squeeze of ripe lemon freshens an intense palate of yellow stone fruit framed by mouthwatering saline acidity. Gentle notes of toast provide a savoury backbone to the luscious fruit, providing moreish balance.

Enjoy with

Our Chardonnay is a natural match for just about everything, but especially seafood and other bright or creamy flavours. Try it with Caprese salad, soft cows’ cheeses, cream sauces or anything smoked or chargrilled.

Chardonnay 2020 Winemaking

How it's made

The grapes are hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed, a traditional approach to keeping the wine fresh and crisp. The resulting juice goes into barrels for fermentation, along with wild yeasts that build complexity and texture. The wine ages for 11 months, with malolactic fermentation used selectively to provide balance.
