Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2012
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Wine SpectatorOffers a laser beam of fruit intensity, with Meyer lemon, tangerine and ruby grapefruit flavors, accented by notes of crushed rock and apricot. A vivid, crisp acidity gives the flavors extra focus. Drink now. 1,400 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chardonnay gives aromas of white peaches, yuzu and grapefruit peel with hints of cedar and buttered popcorn. Medium-bodied with a lively acid backbone cutting through the concentrated fruit and oak layers, it finishes long and yet just a little clumsy.
