Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2017
"The 2017 Cloudy Bay Chardonnay has typical Mendoza clone concentration, with Chablis-like racy acidity and mineral and apple flavour profile. A high-energy wine offering good cellaring potential." Bob Campbell, MW, The Real Review
Immediately expressive with layers of orchard fruits and peaches framed by subtle spice and gentle hazelnut notes. The palate is vibrantly fresh perfectly balancing rounded nectarine and greengage fruits. Intense and concentrated with a long finish of juicy stone fruits and citrus florals.

Vintage 2010 -For all the fame of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc and its ever-rising success with pinot noir, chardonnay has been the quiet member of the family, never quite meeting the grade. Until now. There's an understated confidence to this wine, a seamless inner harmony and a refined texture that unravels slowly through the palate. It's elegant, silky, very long and laced with fragrant lemon blossom, refined white peach and gorgeous grapefruit flavours.
