    Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2016

    While 2016 in Marlborough was one of the driest vintages in history, warm weather leading up to the harvest allowed optimal grape ripening. With the Wairau and Southern Valley vines imparting their own personality to the chardonnay, the wine was fermented in French oak (15% new) with wild yeast. Further aging of 11 months helped the wine to become complete and balanced. 


Bright and unexpectedly complex
