Vines Chardonnay ( %)

Color: Straw yellow with greenish reflections.
Nose: The nose is immediately fresh and enveloping, with notes of candied citrus, fresh flowers and subtle spicy hints.
Taste: On the palate it is round with delicate citrus and white peach characters, wrapped in layers of custard and hazelnut.
Food pairing: Perfect for white meats, fish and shellfish dishes, raw seafood and medium-aged cheeses.

Vintage 2018: The growing season started in perfect style, with stabilized conditions and no frost, which led to early budding and successful flowering. In the vineyard we worked for the management of both the foliage and the yield to guarantee the optimal quality of the fruit and this attention to detail meant that, despite the numerous rainy events in the last part of the season, the fruit was brought to the cellar in excellent conditions.
Harvest: Manual harvest of the Chardonnay from 18 to 30 March, in a point of excellent gustatory concentration and acid balance.
Vinification and aging: After a soft pressing, the juice was decanted and decanted, before being transferred to French oak barriques, 15% of which are new. After fermentation, the wine rested in cask for 11 months before blending. 21% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.

Cloudy Bay

Created in 1985 by David Hohnen, founder of the Cape Mentelle estate in Australia, the Cloudy Bay vineyards extend to the mouth of the bay of the same name in New Zealand. Located between the Pacific Ocean and the Richmond Range mountains, this piece of land offers a truly extraordinary landscape. Cloudy Bay, one of the earliest estates in the Marlborough region, has contributed enormously to making New Zealand one of the most important wine producing areas of the "New World". Expressive, refined and fruity, Cloudy Bay wines reflect the spirit of the region. The Sauvignon Blanc variety is the flagship of the estate and owes its fame to extraordinary freshness and refinement. Cloudy Bay also produces Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a slightly sparkling sparkling wine, Pelorus. An exceptional diversity that reflects the different terroirs of the estate. Inaugurated in 2012, “The Shack” is the new structure in Cloudy Bay made available to a small number of guests. Built on the same site as the wooden house used by the first committed winegrowers in the region, it is inspired by the traditional bach, the wooden holiday homes widespread throughout New Zealand. "A few months after my arrival in Cloudy Bay, the original building went up in smoke, completely destroyed by the flames. I said to myself: "This can't be a bad sign!" From the ashes came the idea of ​​rebuilding a new shed with a more contemporary style, which would represent the present and the future of Cloudy Bay, without forgetting the past ", explains the manager of the estate Ian Morden. Surrounded by vineyards, "The Shack" offers breathtaking views of the Richmond Range mountains thanks to large French windows designed by architect Tim Greer. The sense of detail is a crucial strength for the estate and is one of the values ​​that have contributed to the exceptional nature of its wines. In the production process, Cloudy Bay takes into account a variety of aspects, not least the environmental impact. This is why sustainable development has always played a fundamental role within the company. Cloudy Bay is firmly committed to implementing good environmental practices in the management of its wine business and in the cultivation of its vineyards, for a production that is both integrated and unique.
