This wine is a positive evolution of this entry level Pinot Noir style. Fruit driven, with a dominance of classic cherry and red berry characters supported with hints of oak spice adding a touch of complexity over the fine velvet structure. Aromas: Ripe blackberries, black plums and spice are highlighted by toasty nuances.Palate: The supple palate is lead by sweet dark fruit flavours which are well-balanced with savoury complexities and spicy oak. The approachable mouthfeel exposes a silky tannin structure and has a medium long finish.
Redolent of ripe red cherries and plums, infused with the fragrance of violets and a trace of cinnamon spice, Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir is exquisitely aromatic. The palate is both supple and very fine. It has the richness of dark fruits, toasty oak and a savory earthiness that leads into a seamless, lengthy finish.
This wine has a perfumed bouquet of ripe cherries and raspberry fruits - hallmarks of Marlborough Pinot Noir. One the palate, the wine displays ripe fruit with complex savory and spice elements. Soft, silky, fine-grained tannis provide structure and definition, yet also allow for the wine to be consumed young.
