Its Origins

Established in 1985 by Cape Mentelle, Cloudy Bay Vineyards is situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has estate vineyards located at prime sites within the Wairau Valley, and long-term supply agreements with five Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, and pinot noir with lesser quantities of gewurztraminer, Riesling, and pinot gris.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Delicious sauvignon blanc with integrated gooseberry, capsicum, passionfruit and ripe melon flavours supported by gently tangy acidity. The wine has an ethereal texture and a lingering finish. 15 OCT 2021." Drink 2021 - 2025

93/100 The Real Review, Stuart Knox

"Ultra-pale lemon-yellow, almost water-white colour. Lemon zest, thyme and a hint of struck-flint reduction on the nose. Vibrant and zippy lemon and passionfruit across the tongue. The acidity is brisk in its drive to the long finish whilst hints of flinty minerals and cut-grass add to the package. A classic example of this regional style 30 DEC 2021." Drink 2022 - 2027
