The widespread international aromatic grape variety has proudly been part of the Cloudy Bay portfolio since 1986.

The 2017 growing season began with ideal spring conditions; warm temperatures and few frost events encouraged good canopy growth. Settled weather over flowering led to high potential crops, fruit thinning was widely employed to reduce yield and achieve optimum vine balance. Fastidious canopy management throughout the mild and sunny growing season ensured fruit developed, then ripened, at an ideal rate. The excellent weather during the ripening season was interrupted by rain events during the harvest. The single-minded quality focus of the viticulture and winemaking teams, with hour by hour assessment, led to optimum picking decisions. Our low-yielding, early-ripening vineyards with their open canopies, stood us in good stead in what was a tricky vintage across Marlborough and New Zealand.

NoseImmediately appealing and expressive, the 2017 Chardonnay reveals layers of attractive ripe orchard fruits and ripe peach on the nose, framed by subtle spice and gentle notes of roasted hazelnut.

Palate: The palate shows a vibrant freshness, perfectly balancing the rounded nectarine and greengage fruit core. Intense and concentrated, with a long finish of juicy stone fruit and citrus florals.

Food Matching: In China, Bok Choy must be harvested before winter arrives and the countryside freezes over. This healthy vegetable has pungent aromas. Dumplings are a good way to soften them. Our Chardonnay provides a touch of fruit, yet the acidity sensations remain without losing their appeal. The wine should not be served colder than 12° C so as to maintain the intensity of its aromas.
