  • Product Details

    Appealingly aromatic, the 2016 vintage from Cloudy Bay is a multilayered, balanced pinot noir. Flavours of dark fruits and spice complement fine tannins, juicy acidity and great structure.

    For this classic style, winemakers carefully selected and hand-picked grapes from Marlborough’s southern Wairau Valley, including from the estate’s special Mustang and Barracks vineyards.

    Crafted during an exceptionally dry year, this vintage wasn’t without its challenges. But ideal weather before the harvest helped the pinot noir grapes to achieve optimum ripeness, similar in style to 2010, 2014 and 2015. The fruits were hand-picked and destemmed, and following fermentation, the wine was matured in French oak (35% new) for 12 months.
