The appealing nose of our 2011 chardonnay affords aromas of stonefruit, white floral, smokey oak and spice.

The palate it fresh and lively with a bright acid backbone.

Flavours abound of nectarines & peaches, juicy citrus and grapefruit pith.

Good length with delicate texture and a fine mineral thread.

Cloudy Bay chardonnay 2011 is an ideal partner to richer foods such as steamed crab, grilled white fish and fresh egg noodle pasta.

Producer Information

Cloudy Bay Vineyards was established in 1985 by Cape Mentelle, the Western Australian winery, which today is a part of the Moet Hennessy Wine Estates.
The company farms 140 hectares of vines at three carefully selected sites. Vineyards planted in 1986 surround the winery in the Wairau Valley at Rapaura, with additional plantings at nearby Renwick and in the Brancott Valley, in the southern foothills. Five long term contract growers also work closely with Cloudy Bay.
The main varieties grown are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir with lesser quantities of riesling and gewurztraminer. The average annual crush is 1200 tonnes.
The winery takes its name from the bay at the eastern extremity of the Wairau Valley. It was named Cloudy Bay by Captain Cook on his voyage to New Zealand in 1770.
The wines of Cloudy Bay are exported to 20 countries worldwide, the principal markets being Australia, United Kingdom, USA, Europe and Japan. Cloudy Bay will continue to expand its operations and the company believes that the continued success of Marlborough lies in the production of premium wines from varieties best suited to the region.
