2020 Cloudburst Chardonnay
|Type of Wine||White|
|Content (Alc)||0.75 ltr (14%)|
|Drink window||2023 - 2032|
Cloudburst is a small project by New Yorker Will Berliner who started making wine in his 'back yard' in Australia's Margaret River. Because the vineyards only cover 1.25 hectares, Berliner can manage his vineyards with great dedication. The wines are super-terroir wines and have achieved cult status in knowledgeable circles. Considering the very small vineyard, only a small number of bottles (a few hundred) are made from the Cloudburst wines, so they are an absolute collector's item. The wine is distributed via Place de Bordeaux!
The Cloudburst is a brilliant wine of grace, strength and structure. The 2020 Cloudburst is a stunning Chardonnay. Wonderfully aromatic and deeply evocative, the complex scent flows from the glass with a powerful essence of ripe pear, dazzling citrus blossom tinged with hints of sandalwood, with delicious acidity, chic woods. Butter babbler. Minerality, saltiness. Lemon zest and even mint. Super energetic. 97 The Wine Independent / 95 Anson
FACT: In the tab: Attachment you will find the official fact sheet of this wonderful wine.
Cloudburst is a small project by New Yorker Will Berliner who started making wine in his 'backyard' in Margaret River, Australia. Because the vineyards only cover 1.25 hectares, Berliner can manage his vineyards with great dedication. The very small vineyards are all organic and mainly worked by hand. If he can find reliable help, one of his main tasks is to weed out among his densely planted, almost bonsai-like vines.
He planted the first vines in 2005, but the process still continues as he continually fills holes in the vineyard. No supplemental water is used, so some vines invariably don't take root well and need to be replaced the following year - and sometimes the year after. The wines are super-terroir wines and have achieved cult status in knowledgeable circles. The price reflects the scarcity and intensive labor that Berliner devotes to the vineyard.
