Cloud No. 9 Marlborough Pinot Noir comes from the heart of the Marlborough Golden Mile in Rapaura.
The berry is an uneven ripener that needs to be sorted carefully, and getting this right takes time, patience and perfectionism. It is hand picked, vinified using traditional methods and aged in oak barrels for a total of 18 months.
Our Pinot exhibits beautiful, primary fruit characters on the nose. Displaying hints of dark cherries, raspberry and wild violets. It has a delightful juicing mid palate, with fine grain tannins and clean acidity. Once it has opened up, new flavours will come to light that bring you back for a second taste.
The yields of this grape are small, as is the production.
Food match: Duck de Chine, cold cut red meats or venison steak with red wine blue cheese sauce.
Alcohol Content: 13.5%. Please drink responsibly.
