Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Te Wahi 2015
Following a cool start to spring in 2015, warmer temperatures arrived for flowering and led to earlier-than-average ripening. Grapes grew to reveal intense flavours and excellent ripeness. The 2015 vintage underwent wild yeast fermentation and was aged for 12 months in French oak (30% new), then a further nine months in the bottle in Cloudy Bay's cellars.

A match with rich meats
Full-flavoured wild game, duck, venison or richly marbled Wagyu beef are the perfect complement to the deep flavours and fine tannins of this well-structured wine.
