Set of 6 bottles of the elegant Marlborough red.  A classic Pinot Noir. This is a balanced and lively expression of Pinot Noir from the Marlborough region. Powerful bouquet and a wide selection of flavours, from the lighter spectrum of rose, violet and ripe berry fruit to dark cherry with a hint of luscious plum.  A seamless structure and concentrated palate, framed with ripe silky tannins and complex spicy oak and herbal notes. Long and fleshy. 

Please note, we cannot guarantee specific vintages in these gift sets. The vintages will be the current available one.

The vineyards of Cloudy Bay are located at superior sites throughout the Marlborough region to maximise the considerable diversity that exists in micro-climates and soil types. The different sites provide nuances of aroma and flavour, bringing complexity to the wines. Cloudy Bay's first commercial vintage was produced in 1985 from purchased grapes, and the company later planted its own vineyards. It was one of the first New Zealand wines to be widely exported and came to attention because of its fruit-forward style and very pronounced varietal character.

 

Grapes for this wine were sourced from carefully selected sites located within the southern Wairau Valley including the Mustang and Barracks vineyards. The soils have a clay base with aged alluvial gravels that provide good drainage. This soil structure allows a relatively consistent availability of water to the vines through the summer months, minimising water stress to the pinot noir vines. The vines are all pruned and trained to a two-cane, vertically shoot positioned canopy with an average yield of 5 tonnes/hectare.
