The Wine Advocate 85 pts - Neal Martin
The 2007 Chardonnay spent a year in barrel matured in 20% new oak with 8% under malo. The fruit again seems rather subdued and lacking definition. Touches of grapefruit and dried mango, but all rather smudged. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe honeyed fruits, touches of nectarine and passion fruit, the oak a little prominent especially on the finish but it has more definition and poise than the Sauvignon Blanc. Moderate length. It comes across rather anonymous.

Wine Spectator 88 pts - Harvey Steiman
Smooth and round, with a smoky edge to the lemon, orange and pear flavors, balanced with lively acidity. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast 90 pts - Joe Czerwinski
Full-bodied, rich and custardy, with ripe melon and pineapple fruit framed by toasted grain. This is a big, powerful, opulent Chardonnay, yet it also shows the finesse expected from Cloudy Bay. Drink it over the next year or two.

An irresistible mix of ripe citrus and toasted nut aromas reminiscent of grapefruit, fig and pistachio biscotti taken with chamomile tea. The palate leads with savoury notes which give way to a taut citrus core, revealing the vibrant Marlborough fruit. Natural yeast fermentation and judicious oak handling combine to deliver a refined and textural finish. Expect the 2007 Cloudy Bay Chardonnay to age gracefully over the next five to seven years.
