2004 Cloudy Bay Chardonnay
A textural and full-bodied wine, Cloudy Bay Chardonnay combines New Zealand fruit vibrancy with Burgundian style. Packed full of citrus and stone fruit flavours with a savoury complexity, enhanced by judicious use of new oak, this is an intriguing and complex wine.
Wine & SpiritsCloudy Bay is better known for its Sauvignon Blanc, but their Chardonnay is dependably good as well. This vintage seems a little lighter than previous efforts, but it still offers flavorful notes of cashew butter atop a base of pineapple and lemon fruit.
