Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wine makers to venture into Marlborough. At the time, it was almost an unimaginable place to set-up a vineyard. But Cloudy Bay’s founder - David Hohnen - was convinced of its potential to produce great wine and invested in the best land of the region. Since then, Marlborough has risen to become New Zealand’s leading wine region, as well as one of the finest winemaking locations in the world.
A restrained nose of lime zest, mandarin sherbert and white flowers. The palate is lush and mouthfilling with flavours of honeysuckle and red apple. The solid spine of acidity balances the sweet fruit flavours and gives lift to the lingering palate. An elegant layer of minerality gives added interest to this off dry style of riesling.
Riesling is hands-down the best food wine in the world. Its balance of intense acidity, minerality, and fruit makes it an especially good match for spicy foods and the mix of ethnic flavors popular in the West. Try with Satay Chicken if you want a treat.
