2005 Cloudy Bay Chardonnay
Savory aromas of sesame biscuits and white mushrooms meld with the fragrance of ripe oranges and yellow plums, depicting the combination of wild yeast fermentation and vibrant Marlborough fruit. The palate is textural and generous with zesty citrus and nougat flavors, subtle toasty oak, and a long mineral finish.
