Cloudy Bay Chardonnay, Marlborough and Central Otago, New Zealand 2017
100% Chardonnay. Barrel fermented and in French oak for 11 months.
Immediately appealing and expressive, the 2017 Chardonnay reveals layers of attractive ripe orchard fruits and ripe peach on the nose, frame by subtle spice and gentle notes of roasted hazelnut. The palate shows a vibrant freshness, perfectly balancing the rounded nectarine and greengage fruit core. Intense and concentrated, with a long finish of juicy stone fruit and citrus florals.
