Cloudy Bay Marlborough Pelorus Brut
The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus fruits indicate its chardonnay origins. A layered bouquet of apple and lemon citrus complements fresh bready notes derived from two years bottle ageing on lees. The deliciously crisp palate displays toasty creamy complexity.
"Delicious full-flavoured style with toasty, yeasty Chardonnay fruit... long, soft, creamy palate with good mousse, weight and structure."
Tyson Stelzer, 93/100
"Lots of cracked yeast and bread, white peach and citrus – complexity and intensity here. Full flavoured, briney and high impact, with fine acidity and an attractive bubbly mouth-feel. Has some Champagne character, yet also has individual style and quality. Very good. Surprisingly so."
Gary Walsh, Winefront, 93/100
