Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2017

Marlborough, New Zealand   |    750ml   |    14%
Cloudy Bay's Marlborough Pinot Noir journey began over 30 years ago with their first plantings of Pinot Noir grapes. Since then, the winemakers at Cloudy Bay have have relentlessly pursued their goal of crafting a benchmark Pinot Noir for the Marlborough region. Taking a traditional, purist approach to this, Cloudy Bay is now recognised as one of New Zealand's finest Pinots.

There's so much to like about the 2017 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir which is brimming with complexity and flavour; with plum, spice and red florals aromatics. The palate is focussed with a savoury structure; milk chocolate, dark fruit and spice perfectly integrated with leather and hints of earthiness. Chalky tannins linger on a long finishing, rounding off what is a superb drinking Pinot Noir from Cloudy Bay.

The 2017 growing season began with ideal spring conditions; warm temperatures and few frost events encouraged good canopy growth. Settled weather over flowering led to high potential crops, fruit thinning was widely employed to reduce yield and achieve optimum vine balance. Fastidious canopy management throughout the mild and sunny growing season ensured fruit developed, then ripened, at an ideal rate.

The excellent weather during the ripening season was interrupted by rain events during the harvest. The single-minded quality focus of the viticulture and winemaking teams, with hour by hour assessment, led to optimum picking decisions. Our low-yielding, early-ripening vineyards with their open canopies, stood us in good stead in what was a tricky vintage across Marlborough and New Zealand.
