Aromas of freshly baked biscotti, straight from the oven ... grapefruit and lemon peel, roasted Brazil nut and dried figs. Derived from a combination of Burgundian winemaking style and vibrant Marlborough fruit, the palate is chalky in texture and the flavours deliciously refined, with hints of baked apple over flinty yeast characters. The Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2001 is impeccably balanced and shows potential to age gracefully for at least the next five years.
