    A vibrant and attractive, red-cherry pinot that offers plenty of intense fruit fragrance and sweet spice. The palate has a silky, sleek and plush, primary-fruit core and delivers attractive, easygoing style. Drink now. Screw cap.

  • Wine Enthusiast 90

    Although initially quite closed and reductive, give this time in the glass or decanter and it soon reveals plenty of New World fruitiness with a dose of Burgundian funk. Ripe cherries, violets, baking spices and slightly mealy, vanillin oak on the nose lead to a palate that is plush and ripe yet lifted by a crunch of acidity. Savory tannins and earthy, mineral streaks add complexity. Simultaneously approachable and austere, this could be drunk now but will improve with age. CHRISTINA PICKARD

    Pinot Noir Marlborough
  • New Zealand is a fascinating land, where nature, the sea and a climate that is just the right amount of gloomy, allow wine producers to achieve great results. Unfortunately in small numbers, though. Cloudy Bay is probably the best known company in New Zealand. Its Pinot Noir vineyards are located south of the Wairau Valley, where the soil is clayey and graveled. The harvest takes place between the end of March and the beginning of April. The carefully selected grapes are quickly transported to the winery for processing. Part of the grapes are destemmed and part are sent to maceration still with their stalks. This particular technique has been perfected over the years and has the advantage of allowing a greater extraction of tannins from the grapes. After vinification, the wine rests for about a year in French oak barrels, only partly new. The result is a wine characterized by an intense ruby red colour. On the nose notes of red fruits, violets and sweet spices. In the mouth, however, it shows a good structure and a pleasant softness. It's hard to imagine a more elegant and satisfying new world Pinot Noir.

    Located in the South Island of New Zealand, in the Marlborough region, the Company takes its name from the bay at the eastern end of the Wairau Valley, which was so named by Captain Cook during his voyage in 1770. Cloudy Bay exists thanks to the dream of its founder, David Hohnen, former founder of Cape Mentelle, a visionary who has made the wine expression of terroir his life's mission. In 1983 he tasted a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc for the first time. He was so enchanted by it that he decided to create his own winery and produce the best Sauvignon Blanc in the new world. This goal has been perfectly achieved, so much so that even today Cloudy Bay is credited with having made Sauvignon Blanc famous and, more generally, with having made the quality of New Zealand wines known to the world. In 1997, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc was the first New Zealand wine in Wine Spectator's Top 10 list.
