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 how well grapes grown in two terroirs complement each other: the silky, richly flavored grapes from Cloudy Bay’s Calvert vineyard and the powerful, structured qualities found in Northburn’s grapes work together to spectacular effect.

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 flavor and ripeness.
More to try
Embrace the finest and be bold
When preparing your menu, continue the theme of raw beauty to bring the wine’s flavors to life. A starter of richly marbled Wagyu beef tartare works perfectly.
As a main course, opt for wild game and duck, or a beef dish, which will stand up to this aromatic pinot noir.
