A classically elegant pinot noir from Cloudy Bay's finest Marlborough vineyards. The 2018 vintage blends complex aromas of native New Zealand fruits with silky tannins and juicy acidity.2018 was a year of mixed conditions: a warm and dry December, followed by periods of rain close to the harvest.

Blend and Origin
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, where sun-drenched vineyards are cooled by coastal breezes. Eighteen days of skin contact added tannins, which were softened with oak aging (35% new) for 11 months.
