Cloudy Bay’s new vintage redefines Chardonnay

Cloudy Bay’s new vintage redefines Chardonnay

The winemaking philosophy of Cloudy Bay chardonnay revolves around a very stripped back approach. Juice in the barrel is settled for a very short time without the use of enzyme to retain a high level of solids. Following this is a long indigenous fermentation, taking place in barrel.

“These techniques work together to build complexity of flavour, but more importantly they contribute texture and architecture to the palate,” explains Tim Heath. “It takes our wine beyond simple fruit flavour. It is a wine to watch and speaks of its origin.”

Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2012 is the ideal partner to crab filled ravioli or the simple delicacy of white grilled fish with a classic beurre blanc sauce.

Cloudy Bay 2012 Chardonnay is now available at all leading fine wine retailers and selected restaurants and bars throughout New Zealand.
