Cloudy Bay, Pelorus, Marlborough, New Zealand
(at Moet Estates & Wines Tasting, 13 Dec 2016)
A creamy, citrus and vanilla-saturated oak nose precedes a round, full bodied mouthfeel. Elegant flavours of fresh citrus fruit and cream are followed by nutty and spicy hints. A fresh dose of crisp green apple appears on the finish.

This blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir spends a minimum of 30 months on lees, resulting in a very biscuity autolytic character and a soft, creamy mousse. The mid-palate is packed with ripe red apple fruit and ripe citrus, and there’s a gently grippy chalkiness on the finish. Very approachable and easy to enjoy.
