A first class Marlborough Pinot Noir from the Cloudy Bay vineyards. Full of bright cherry and plum fruit with cinnamon and clove spice.  

Built on the belief that pinot noir should speak of its origins, Te Wahi comes from the Maori phrase for “the place” and perfectly embodies the raw beauty that is New Zealand’s Central Otago. 

A wine of incredible finesse, Te Wahi showcases the complementarity of two terroirs: the silky, richly flavoured grapes from Cloudy Bay’s Calvert vineyard, and the powerful, structured qualities found in Northburn. 

Rich cherry and plum fruit that is spiced with oak notes of cinnamon and clove. Sitting below the fruit, earthen and mineral smokiness, which is lifted by hedonistic floral notes 

The grapes were handpicked between 7th and 14th of April and displayed intense flavour and excellent levels of skin and seed tannin ripeness.

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.
