Details
This New Zealand pinot noir hails from Cloudy Bay's best Marlborough vineyards, where a long and steady growing season allows the grapes to reach their full maturity. It displays aromas and flavours of black and red autumnal fruit such as bramble, morello cherry and loganberry.
11 months in French oak has helped to add body, while skin contact adds silky smooth and well-integrated tannins. Juicy acidity means this vintage is like some lighter styles of pinot noir from Burgundy.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2019

The season in Marlborough is long and filled with sunshine, which is ideal for early-ripening yet slow-developing pinot noir.
 

Sunshine bathes the southern Wairau Valley where these grapes are grown, and a mixture of clay and gravel soils help with water and heat retention in this cool, dry region.
 

During fermentation, the grapes are soaked on their skins for 16 days to extract silky tannins, and aging takes place in French oak for 11 months to add body.
