Area: Marlborough, New Zealand Foundation: 1985



    The iconic wine behind the Cloudy Bay tale defined New Zealand's wine and established the Marlborough wine region globally. Juicy passion fruits aroma and rich fruits of Mandarin orange with refreshing herbs and green apple are the reasons why the whole world fell in love with the Sauvignon Blanc of Marlborough.

    "Impressive sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, lime sherbet dab and capsicum plus a subtle passionfruit influence. An ethereal, aromatic wine with impressive purity. Fruit sweetness is balanced by refreshing and fruity acidity."

    The widespread international aromatic grape variety has proudly been part of the Cloudy Bay portfolio since 1986. This deliciously savoury wine has a classic taste characterized by aromas of lime and blood orange with toasty nougat and nuts flavors added with deep minerality.

    "A full and ripe chardonnay that has plenty of toasty oak and savory grilled nuts as well as a swathe of ripe peach and pear fruits. Some grapefruit hints too. The palate has abundant stone fruits with a pithy citrusy edge. Oak gloss over the finish."

    Forget all you know about New Zealand's Sauvignon Blanc ! Cloudy Bay broke the winemaking rules to create a sophisticated style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc made through wild fermentation and aging in old French oak barrique. The seductive taste has flavors of smoky caramel and floral notes with fully ripen citrus and tropical fruits.

    "Four parcels of grapes, whole-bunch pressed, barrel-fermented using wild yeasts, partial malolactic fermentation, 15-18 months on lees. Quite a rich, complex wine with toast, marmite, ginger, nectarine, citrus, lime and struck flint flavours. A good food wine that still retains varietal character and crisp acidity. "

    The elegant Marlborough red is a balanced and lively expression of Pinot Noir from the Marlborough region. With an inviting, smokey nose of plum and black cherries, this Pinot Noir has overtones of baking spices. A soft palate entry supplemented by chalky tannins builds structure towards an intense, brooding finish.

    "Elegant pinot noir with ripe cherry, plum, violet, anise and spicy oak flavours. Restrained, sophisticated and harmonious wine that is seductive rather than aggressively attention-grabbing. Nicely layered finish that offers length, power and many subtle flavours."

    Defining a new Pinot Noir place, Cloudy Bay’s “Te Wahi”, meaning “the place” in Maori, speaks of its origin, encapsulating the extremely southerly and continental terroir that is Central Otago. The palate is decadently sweet fruited and richly textured. The density of the wine is counter balanced by bright acidity and supple tannins. The finish is long, focused and complex.

    "Te Wahi means 'The Place'. Sealed with a new Amorim cork that is guaranteed to be tca-free. Appealing sweet, succulent plum, cherry, floral and spice flavours balanced by dusty tannins. An elegant wine that should age well"

    Its subtlety and elegance make it the perfect choice for any occasion. Apple-crisp flavours complement a nutty, yeasty complexity derived from a two-year bottle maturation on lees. Sophisticated and layered, Pelorus sets the benchmark for Marlborough sparkling wines.

    5 Stars - Michael Cooper, The Listener
    "A real mouthful of flavour, this Marlborough blend of pinot noir and chardonnay was disgorged after seven years on its yeast lees. Bright, light lemon/green, it has a highly fragrant, yeasty, complex bouquet, leading into an intense, vigorous wine packed with citrusy, peachy, biscuity flavours. Crisp and long."
