Created in 1985 by David Hohnen, founder of the Cape Mentelle estate in Australia, the Cloudy Bay vineyards extend to the mouth of the eponymous bay in New Zealand. This landscape, nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Richmond Range mountains, is truly exceptional. Cloudy Bay, one of the first estates to be established in the Marlborough region, has made a huge contribution to making New Zealand one of the great names in “New World” wines. Expressive, refined and fruity, Cloudy Bay wines embody the spirit of the region. Sauvignon blanc is the estate’s flagship grape variety. Its reputation stems from its freshness and finesse. Cloudy Bay also produces a chardonnay, a pinot noir and a delicately sparkling wine, Pelorus. This wonderful variety of wine is a reflection of its diverse terroir.
