Nikolai's Selection

Nikolai joined the Cloudy Bay family in 2020 as  Senior Wine Maker. He believes good winemaking is about finding balance and interest for the drinker. It’s an approach that takes patience, knowledge and good instincts for great wine. With four Winemaker of the Year awards under his belt from his time at Matua and Geisen wineries, it’s very clearly an approach that works.

Chardonnay is his variety of choice and says there’s no better match than wild venison carpaccio. His selection of course had to include it.

An outdoorsy type of the highest order, he’s a keen hunter, diver and spearfisherman. He also runs a strawberry farm with his wife Jasmine and their three children, ensuring he is both busy and outdoors 365 days of the year
