Cloudy Bay, Marlborough, Chardonnay
The 2014 Chardonnay is fresh, fragrant and mouth-watering. The nose is redolent of orchard fruit, white peach, apricot, blossom and warm hay. The palate is concentrated, with notes of apple and pear balanced by gentle vanilla spice, hazelnut and a subtle saline note. Complex flavours of cashew nut, preserved lemon and nectarine. Then, subtle grapefruit and white floral notes reveal themselves.
Layered with a bold complexity of ripe fruit flavour and spicy, smoky oak characters. The combined texture of fruit density and lees work provides a focal point that is balanced by fresh and firm acidity. A dart of citrus acidity delivers freshness and leads to a long and appealing finish.
