Opulent aromas of dark plums and cardamom spice are enhanced by the earthy scent of liquorice and hints of smoky oak. The palate is highly concentrated with black cherry and red berry flavours supported by silky tannins through to a long and generous finish. The 2005 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir reflects an idyllic Marlborough vintage and will continue to gain additional complexity over 4 5 years if cellared in ideal conditions.

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Region: Marlborough

Region Description:

When the first growers planted grapes in Marlborough in the 1970s (there is evidence of plantings as early as 1870s), it is unlikely they would have foreseen the extent of the growth and fame that the region’s wine industry would achieve, based upon a single varietal called Sauvignon Blanc. The distinctive pungency and zest fruit flavours of the first Marlborough wines, in particular Sauvignon Blanc, captured the imagination of the country's winemakers as well as international wine commentators and consumers and sparked an unparalleled boom in vineyard development. Worldwide interest in Marlborough wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc, has continued to fuel that regional wine boom.
