Pinot Noir 2021 taste description

The Pinor Noir 2021 is incredibly pretty and enticing on the nose, with notes of boysenberry, cherry and fragrant, dusky florals. On the palate, crunchy dark cherry, cranberry and hedgerow fruit notes burst in the mouth and bring an immediate sense of freshness. The tannins are super-fine, effortlessly underpinning the intense and succulent fruit character.

Versatility is our Pinot Noir’s calling card. It matches with a wide variety of foods, including lighter game meats (duck, rabbit), lamb, roasted vegetables, berries, herbs and almost anything chargrilled.

Pinot Noir 2021 Winemaking

How it's made

The grapes are de-stemmed and put into open-top fermenters with wild yeast. Some whole bunches are included to build structure. Once the wine is pressed, it’s matured in French oak for 11 months. The final wine is an elegant, complex and fine-boned expression of Marlborough’s soils and Cloudy Bay’s vision.

Our fruit

Vineyards and terroir

Our Pinot Noir comes from the cool clay soils and rolling, north-facing 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. Key blocks include the Mustang, Delta and Barracks vineyards.

“Our aim at Cloudy Bay is to allow the terroir to express itself in the wines we make – it is important to us to hear the soils, the climate, and the vintage speak in the glass. Therefore, in our vineyards, our role is to ensure that vines produce fruit of the very highest quality – and in the winery, our intention is to express that quality in the purest way. We don’t want our winemaking techniques to be louder than the voice of the vineyard.”

Jim White, 2019
