      Tasting Notes
      Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wine makers to venture into Marlborough. At the time, it was almost an unimaginable place to set-up a vineyard. But Cloudy Bay’s founder - David Hohnen - was convinced of its potential to produce great wine and invested in the best land of the region. Since then, Marlborough has risen to become New Zealand’s leading wine region, as well as one of the finest winemaking locations in the world.

      The winery was named after Cloudy Bay, a body of water explorer Captain James Cook came across during his voyage to New Zealand in 1770. His discovery coincided with flooding in the region, which washed large amounts of sediment into the sea. Noticing the water’s opaque appearance, Cook cleverly christened the area Cloudy Bay.

      Powerful and exotic, the 2015 Chardonnay is an embodiment of the artistry and the craft of Cloudy Bay. The 2015 Chardonnay is savoury and complex, a wine whose deftly woven aromatics give way to power on the palate - Tim Heath, Chief Winemaker at Cloudy Bay.

      "The 2015 Chardonnay offers delicate grapefruit, white peach and orange blossom notes with hints of brioche, marzipan and honeysuckle. The medium-bodied palate is finely constructed with plenty of freshness to support the savory and stone fruit flavors, finishing with satisfying length. 91 Points."
      (Lisa Perotti Brown, eRobertparker.com, December 2015)
