2012 Cloudy Bay Te Wahi Pinot Noir, Central Otago

Availability: Out of stock

Deep red/purple, an impressively dark colour. The bouquet is shy and reticent, and shows oak and ripe fruit, with some spice and dark fruit notes, including clove. A touch of almond meal. The structure is full-bodied and firm, well endowed with tannin, the flavour is rich and concentrated but smooth and fleshy, the core of sweet fruit peeping out from under the blanket of tannin. An outstanding pinot. 30 JUL 2015 Drink 2016–2030

Today, Cloudy Bay not only captures the essence of Marlborough but also embodies New Zealand's luxury to the world. The luxury of space and time, of intimate moments and nature’s rarest qualities.

Te Wahi (‘The Place’) is Cloudy Bay’s first foray beyond the Marlborough region. Hand-picked in three districts – Bannockburn, Bendigo and Lowburn – of the Cromwell Basin and matured 14 months in French oak barriques (40% new) Te Wahi is a deeply coloured, highly concentrated wine with a real sense of drive. 

The 2012 Te Wahi has an appealing and ripe nose with plum, aromatic spice and red florals dominating.The palate displays savoury architecture with deeply packed and concentrated core. Bittersweet chocolate, dark fruits, spice leather and hints of earthiness are all evident. The mouthfeel is alive with brisk acidity, enhancing the juiciness of the fruit, and fine-grained, chalky tannins linger on a persistent finish.
