Product DetailsBuilt on the belief that pinot noir should speak of its origins, Te Wahi comes from the Maori phrase for “the place” and perfectly embodies the raw beauty that is New Zealand’s Central Otago. A wine of incredible finesse, Te Wahi showcases the complementarity of two terroirs: the silky, richly flavoured grapes from Cloudy Bay’s Calvert vineyard, and the powerful, structured qualities found in Northburn.

Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Te Wahi 2014
This vintage combines pinot noir grapes from two vineyards – Calvert in Bannockburn, which produces wines of richness, density and silkiness, and Northburn on the east bank of Lake Dunstan, which yields wines that are structural and brooding. The year was marked by a cool start, yet rainfall in November and a warm autumn allowed for fruits of intense flavour and ripeness.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Embrace the finest and be bold
When preparing your menu, continue the theme of raw beauty to bring the wine’s flavours to life. A starter of richly marbled Wagyu beef tartare works perfectly.
As a main course, opt for wild game and duck, or dishes such as venison, which will stand up to this aromatic pinot noir.
