Cloudburst Chardonnay 2013
Restrained aromas here, but serious. Sandalwood, sweet spice, ripe lemons, green apple, sea spray. Radiant. Mouthfeel is wonderful – soft, sighing, satiny and yet spreads with assertive flavour across the palate. Oak is there, but supporting, seasoning the mouthwatering fruit. Young, pliant and very long in flavour. Feels very elegant to drink. It’s great wine. 94+ Points. Drink: 2015-2023.” Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
“Slightly closed at this youthful stage, the 2013 Cloudburst Chardonnay opens with lemon juice, chalk dust and lime peel aromas with faint butterscotch, powdered ginger and Marmite hints. The medium-bodied palate delivers wonderful tension and mouth-filling citrus and stony flavours with a silken texture and a long finish that builds in savory complexity. 95+ Points. Drink: 2016-2022.” Lisa Perotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate.
