    Cloudy Bay have released a very limited number of 1.5 Litre magnums of Chardonnay from their 2011 vintage. Already aged for five years before release these are drinking superbly right now. Want to carry on the cellaring? No sweat, the guys at Cloudy Bay recommend at least ten years cellaring, so they’ve still got a good four or five years to go!

    This is a wicked deal for top class, aged Chardonnay in a large format bottle (you can usually expect to fork out much more for a magnum given the production costs).

    A powerful, medium to full bodied style of Chardonnay, mostly hand picked fruit that’s been entirely aged for 15 months in French oak. Here’s what the wine buffs have had to say about this vintage…

    5 Stars, 94/100 (Sam Kim) – “Cloudy Bay Chardonnays have been known to mature beautifully, and no doubt this will too…Multi-layered and very promising. At its best: now to 2022″

    4 1/2 Stars (Michael Cooper) – “Powerful Marlborough wine with impressively concentrated, savoury, lemony, mealy flavours and a proven ability to mature well over the long haul”

    Match one of Marlborough’s finest with the finest from Marlborough – we’re thinking fresh seafood, especially crayfish!
