100% Pinot Noir from carefully selected sites located within the southern Wairau Valley of Marlborough, including the Mustang and Barracks vineyards.
Fruit was entirely handpicked and destemmed before being gravity fed into the fermentation vessels. 13% of the fermentation was comprised of whole bunches. The fermentations utilised natural occurring yeast populations under carefully monitored conditions. The grape skins were gently plunged with an average of 18 days skin contact. Matured in French oak for 12 months, of which 35% was new.
A classic Marlborough Pinot Noir which echoes the style and quality synonymous with Cloudy Bay. Layered with all the intrigue of bright red fruit, heady spice and silky structure, the 2015 vintage is as concentrated as it is refreshing
