Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2014

100% Chardonnay from four vineyard blocks located in separated sub-regions of Marlborough: Brancott, Fairhall, Ben Morven and Central Wairau Valley.

After gentle pressing, the juice was barrel fermented in French oak. Remained in barrel for 1 year of maturation, 18% new oak. Regular lees stirring was used in order to build aromatic complexity. The wine naturally went through 70% malolactic conversion. The final blend was compiled in January 2014 and bottled the following June.

Winemaker's Comments

Complex aromas of cashew nut, preserved lemon and nectarine. The palate is 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.
