The 2016 Chardonnay spent 12 months in 15% new French oak. It features subtle hints of toasted hazelnut and butter, along with notes of white peaches and citrus. This medium-bodied wine is silky in texture, with a long, grapefruit-tinged finish. It shouldn't be overlooked in the Cloudy Bay lineup.

Cloudy Bay

Unarguably New Zealand’s most internationally-known winery, Cloudy Bay produces the country’s most famous Sauvignon Blanc. Established in 1985 by David Hohnen, both his Western Australian estate, Cape Mentelle, along with Cloudy Bay were recently acquired by the French luxury goods giant, LVMH. Located in Marlborough, at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island, Cloudy Bay takes its name from the inlet that lays just east of its home in Wairau Valley. It’s cool maritime climate combined with the vineyard’s advantageous sun exposure creates for the perfect environment for their Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, smaller amounts of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris varieties to prosper. Their Sauvignon Blanc, is exemplary, great on the nose, with endless fruit flavors which are complemented by a structure that provides an uncharacteristic aging ability. While the Te Koko is a barrel-fermented and aged version of the Sauvignon Blanc. Among the fourteen wines produced, their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir also stand out as some of the best in the country. ...

Grapes

Originating in northern France, Chardonnay is the white grape variety that has taken the world by storm. It is used in the creations of Champagnes (in both blends as well as Blanc de Blancs) as well as in the ethereal and refined white Burgundy, such as Chablis and Montrachet. Winemakers over the world began planting this variety often with the hope of recreating some of France’s vinous treasures. Easily malleable, it is actually a relatively neutral variety that grows well in different climates, though cooler climates still produce its most refined expression, and works well with or without oak, can be still or sparkling as well as simple or incredibly complex. Today, it is the 5th most planted grape variety and the 2nd most planted white grape variety (after Spain’s Airen). ...

Marlborough

Marlborough

As the country’s most significant viticultural regions, Marlborough can be found on the northeastern edge of New Zealand’s South Island. The first vines for commercial use were planted here the early 1970s and went through an impressive expansion during the following years. Today, the region is best known for their production of Sauvignon Blanc, which erupted on the wine scene in the 1980s and 1990s. Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs are characterized by their intense, unique and potent flavors. The region also cultivates other white varieties like Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling, and in recent years Marlborough has seen an increase of Pinot Noir plantings, that are proving to be quality, first-class productions as well.
