Buy Cloudy Bay Chardonnay Online In Australia
This Cloudy Bay Chardonnay was hand-picked the Chardonnay, at a point of excellent flavour concentration and acid balance. After gentle pressing, the juice was transferred direct to French oak barriques of which 15% were new. Fermentation was carried out using wild yeast in order to build additional texture and complexity in the wine. After fermentation, the wine rested in barrel for 11 months before blending.
"The 2016 Chardonnay is bright and refined, its appealing, aromatic nose belying the depths and complexity to be found on the palate"- Jim White, Technical Director.
Tasting Note: The nose is immediately fresh and beguiling, with notes of candied lemon, citrus flowers and subtle spice. The palate is rounded in the mouth, with gentle citrus and stone fruit characters, enfolded in layers of crème patissière and hazelnut.
