Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2011 750ml

Cloudy Bay Chardonnay

The appealing nose of our 2011 chardonnay affords aromas of stonefruit, white floral, smokey oak and spice. The palate it fresh and lively with a bright acid backbone. Flavours abound of nectarines & peaches, juicy citrus and grapefruit pith. Good length with delicate texture and a fine mineral thread. Our chardonnay 2011 is an ideal partner to richer foods such as steamed crab, grilled white fish and fresh egg noodle pasta.

Aromas of freshly baked biscotti, straight from the oven ... grapefruit and lemon peel, roasted Brazil nut and dried figs. Derived from a combination of Burgundian winemaking style and vibrant Marlborough fruit, the palate is chalky in texture and the flavours deliciously refined, with hints of baked apple over flinty yeast characters. The Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2001 is impeccably balanced and shows potential to age gracefully for at least the next five years.

The chardonnay grapes, eighty percent the low yielding Mendoza clone, twenty percent UCD6, were harvested from ten estate and grower vineyards located in the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. Soils vary from the silty gravels found in Rapaura to the fine silty loams of Renwick and the Brancott Valley. The vineyards are planted at a density of 1,850 vines per hectare and all vines are trained to the Scott Henry trellis system. The average yield in 2001 was 7.1 tonnes per hectare.
