From one of the pioneering wineries of New Zealand, the 2020 Cloudy Bay Chardonnay beautifully reflects the quality and character of Marlborough Chardonnay. It's a white wine that melds the fruit intensity of New World wine with a sense of elegance more often associated with Burgundy.

The 2020 Chardonnay is a welcoming burst of warmth and intensity. The nose is immediately open and appealing, with notes of white peach, apricot, ripe citrus and warm hay. A squeeze of ripe lemon freshens an intense palate of yellow stone fruit framed by mouthwatering saline acidity. Gentle notes of toast provide a savoury backbone to the luscious fruit, providing moreish balance.

While already offering complexity and balance upon release, the Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2020 also holds excellent potential for aging. Over time, it will continue to evolve, with the fruit flavors deepening and secondary notes of nuts, honey, and butter becoming more pronounced.

A versatile partner to food, this Chardonnay would pair beautifully with a wide variety of dishes, from chicken in creamy sauces to seafood dishes like grilled scallops or lobster thermidor.
