Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2015
In 2015 the Chardonnay was harvested from seven selected Marlborough blocks, each located within the sub-regions of Brancott, Rapaura, Omaka and Renwick. Lower yields, coupled with a lighter must weight and a bright acid, were underpinned by a powerful concentration of flavour. After a gentle pressing, and barrel fermentation, the wine rested in barrel for one year of maturation in French oak of which 18% was new.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Enhance savoury dishes with this chardonnay’s freshness
A dish of pumpkin and ricotta gnocchi drizzled with sage brown-butter sauce, or shiitake and bok choy dumplings will match the wine’s elegant aromas. Or simply serve with oysters.
The floral, buttery notes of the wine complement fish perfectly. Serve with crab ravioli with lemon butter, grilled halibut with tarragon beurre blanc and asparagus, or classic sole meunière.
