Pinot Noir is known as the most difficult grape variety to care for. In 1985, David Hohnen founded Cloudy Bay Marlborough's most representative Sauvignon Blanc. For 30 years, Cloudy Bay has continued this pioneering spirit and developed one of the world's most challenging Central. Pinot Noir grape variety from the Otago region. The Te Wahi 2014 vintage released by Cloudy Bay Winery is Pinot Noir from Central Otago, where Pinot Noir grapes are extremely rare, accounting for less than 2% of New Zealand's total.
Te Wahi means "this place" in Maori, Cloudy Bay believes that a good Pinot Noir grape can fully express the characteristics of the local terroir, and the 2014 Pinot Noir shows that Central Otago is located in the southernmost part of the world and the continent with the extreme temperature difference between day and night. type climate. Pinot Noir grapes from Central Otago can produce complex and structured Pinot Noir red wines. The Cloudy Bay winemaking team holds the pioneering spirit since the establishment of the winery and hopes to make everyone feel completely through the development of Pinot Noir grapes in this area. Different flavors of Pinot Noir red wine.
Te Wahi Pinot Noir has aromas of red and dark cherries, black plum and plum, and rich cake aromas. As soon as the bottle is opened, smoky flint and floral flavours emerge. On the palate, sweet fruit flavours with gentle acidity linger in the mouth. The velvety yet firm tannin structure is lingering, and the finish is long, concentrated and layered. The best pairings are: game, duck, venison and wagyu beef.

Cloudy Bay Pelorus Brut NV made from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, Peloru is grown in Marlborough's Wairau Valley. Blending three vintages using a partially fermented base wine and further maturing in the bottle for over two years, Pelorus is a blend of select vintages that brings out all the characteristics of a sparkling Chardonnay.
Aroma: Chardonnay is a refreshing combination of citrus and pear fruit, based on the saltiness of Pinot Noir and characteristics reminiscent of toast and brioche.
Palate: Crispy and delicious with toasty and creamy complexity with a lingering nutty flavor. The texture is rich, but dry and delicate.
