Pelorus taste description

Pelorus is crisp and balanced. The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus hint at its Chardonnay origins. On the nose, a bouquet of apple and lemon complements the aromas of fresh bread, drawn from two years’ bottle ageing on lees. The palate is toasty, creamy and complex, enhanced further by the lingering, nutty finish.

Pelorus is perfect as an aperitif, served with fresh, simple hors d'oeuvres. Try it with oysters, clams and scallops, raw vegetables and fresh new season asparagus.

Vineyards and terroir

The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in Pelorus come from a selection of vineyards planted in the warm stony soils close to the winery. These hold the ideal conditions for the balance of ripeness and acidity required for our signature sparkling wine.

“Cloudy Bay Wines first made its name with Sauvignon Blanc and has since forged a reputation for top quality wines made in a range of styles with the Pelorus bubbly punching significantly above its weight. It's made using the same winemaking methods as champagne, which provide this wine its cream, rich, flavoursome style, full body an dry finish.”
