釀造:
在輕柔搾汁後,便於100%木桶中進行發酵,木桶成分包含很高的法國橡木元素。其後葡萄酒會留在桶內一年,20%新桶。其間進行酒渣攪拌,70%進行蘋果酸-乳酸發酵。

品酒筆記:
年輕時已令人留下深刻印象,是值得留意的酒。香氣複雜,有多層次的白桃、春天花卉和融合得宜的煙燻。口感豐富有結構,充滿果汁的大核果實和檸檬柑橘,能填滿口腔,再由新鮮酸度平衡,給予它酒體和焦點。收結優雅,餘味悠長而活潑。


Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay Vineyards is situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has estate vineyards located at prime sites within the Wairau Valley, and long-term supply agreements with five Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir with lesser quantities of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Gris.

The winery takes its name from the bay at the eastern extremity of the Wairau Valley, which was named Cloudy Bay by Captain Cook on his voyage to New Zealand in 1770.

Region:
Marlborough, New Zealand

Country of Origin:
New Zealand

Grape Variety:
Chardonnay

Vinification:
After gentle pressing, juice was 100% barrel fermented with a high solids content in French oak.  The wine remained in barrel, 20% of it new, for one year prior to bottling.  It enjoyed regular lees stirring to build palate weight and lift aromatics and about 70% saw malolactic fermentation. 

Tasting Notes:
Impressive in its youth, this is a wine to watch.  A complex nose offers layers of white peach, spring florals and well integrated smoke.  The palate is richly textured with fleshy stonefruit and lemon citrus. Mouthfilling yet balanced with fresh acidity giving it shape and focus.  An elegant wine with a lingering and lively finish.
