2020 Cloudburst Chardonnay
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
