Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2015
In 2015 the Chardonnay was composed of a selection of seven 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 flavor. After gentle pressing, the juice was pumped into barrels. Following fermentation, the wine rested in barrel for one year of maturation in French oak of which 18% was new.
