Cloudy Bay Chardonnay

For all the fame of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc and its ever-rising success with pinot noir, chardonnay has been the quiet member of the family, never quite meeting the grade. Until now. There’s an understated confidence to this wine, a seamless inner harmony and a refined texture that unravels slowly through the palate. It’s elegant, silky, very long and laced with fragrant lemon blossom, refined white peach and gorgeous grapefruit flavours. $32 at Dan’s.
