Vinous:  "The 2016 Chardonnay has a more backward, perhaps more mineral-driven nose than the 2015, lighter yet very well defined and revealing touches of struck flint with time. The fresh, vibrant palate is well balanced, displaying a fine bead of acidity and leading to an elegant finish that just needs to develop more personality. Still a quality Chardonnay, though."  Nov 2018

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay spent 12 months in 15% new French oak. It features subtle hints of toasted hazelnut and butter, along with notes of white peaches and citrus. This medium-bodied wine is silky in texture, with a long, grapefruit-tinged finish. It shouldn't be overlooked in the Cloudy Bay lineup."  Feb 2018

Winery:  "Proudly part of the Cloudy Bay portfolio since 1986, this deliciously savory Chardonnay is fragrant, textured and elegant.

The 2016 Chardonnay is bright and refined, its appealing, aromatic nose belying the depths and complexity to be found on the palate. The nose is immediately fresh and beguiling, with notes of candied lemon, citrus flowers and subtle hints of spice. The palate is rounded in the mouth, with gentle citrus and stone fruit characters, enfolded in layers of crème patissière and hazelnut."
