The Cloudy Bay 2019 Pinot Noir is deep, dark-fruited and aromatic. The nose is laden with notes of bramble berries, graphite and morello cherry.

On the palate you'll find Victoria plum, loganberry and autumn fruit held together with fine, silky tannins and balanced with juicy acidity. The finish is long and the wine is exceptionally moreish.

Established in 1985 by Kevin Judd and David Hohnen, Cloudy Bay was one of the first vineyards in the Marlborough wine region on New Zealand's South Island, establishing itself as the standard by which all New Zealand wines are judged. Named after the nearby bay whose waters turn cloudy when the Wairau River fills them with silt, Cloudy Bay wines embrace the quintessential expression of the pristine, bracing, pure flavours of New Zealand.   Its reputation and quality helped put New Zealand wines on the global wine map, earning them international prestige.

Our Pinot Noir comes from the cool clay soils and rolling, northfacing slopes of Marlborough's Southern Valleys region. The aged alluvial gravels and dense clay subsoils balance drainage and water availability to yield the region's best Pinot Noir grapes.

With over 30 years of experience with the variety in this region, our sites are selected carefully and each vineyard tended with care. The vines are trained with vertical shoot positioning to make the most of the sunlight. The key vineyards for this variety are Mustang, Delta, and Barracks.

The 2019 growing season began with early budburst after a mild winter and warm early spring. Late spring brought cool, unsettled weather during flowering, which meant lower than- average yields. The weather continued through December, but Christmas brought the gift of warm, dry conditions until harvest.

Vineyard crews undertook careful canopy work to ensure the grapes could bask in the sun, with the resulting fruit proving concentrated and complex. We hand-picked the Pinot Noir from February 27th until April 2nd, at a point of excellent flavour concentration and acid balance.
