Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2008 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 94/100Vintages Wine Panel: The folks at Cloudy Bay are known as gurus with Sauvignon Blanc, yet their skill with Chardonnay cannot be denied. Nice intensity here, with a wide variety of concentrated citrus, peach and mango aromas and flavours to enjoy. Beautifully structured, with a mouth-wateringly refreshing acidity, lush texture, and impressive finish. Perfect with buttery lobster. My note: Supremely crafted Chardonnay! Amazing balance between fresh green apple fruit and creamy richness from oak. Buttery with a long finish. Try this wine at least once in your life.
Chardonnay food pairings: lobster.

Cloudy Bay was the label that brought New Zealand to the World Wine Stage with their 'groundbreaking' Sauvignon Blanc. Personally, I think there are better Sav Blancs out there and that their Chardonnay is definitely more interesting. Hints of peach and biscuit with a nice edge of minerality.
