Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2014
Winemakers have delivered what they call their best pinot noir to date. Grapes, grown in the southern Wairau Valley, benefited from fine weather and careful vineyard management, with extensive crop thinning ensuring grape quality. After gentle handling and wild-yeast fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak (35% new).
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.

Rich and fulsome flavours
Sweet and sticky pork ribs will bring out the oaky notes in this wine, while a lamb’s lettuce salad topped with savoury herbs and walnuts will complement its long finish.
Pan-roasted duck breast with a sweet and tart cherry sauce, or duck-leg confit served with red cabbage and roasted potatoes are hearty matches for this classic pinot noir.
Serve with soft mould cheese.
