Explore the refreshing elegance of The Cloud Factory Pinot Noir. Sourced from maritime vineyards in Marlborough's south easterly extremes, this wine captures a breezy finesse over classic cranberry and wild strawberry aromas. With a lick of oak for smoothness, this wine is perfect for delicately rich and aromatic food like duck dim sums and tempura fried vegetables.

About the Producer

Boutinot's New Zealand wines are sourced from vineyards in each sub-region of Marlborough - the Awatere, Waihopai and Wairau Valleys, as well as the breezier region of Waipara. These valleys have their own micro-climates and terroir which give a unique personality to the vineyards, grapes and finished wines.

Samantha Bailey brings her blending expertise and experienced palate to the fore in expressing the loveliest Boutinot wines from The Land of the Long White Cloud.

Vineyard and Winery

The Cloud Factory Pinot Noir came from 2 vineyards - 87% Rapaura Gravels and 13% Omaka Valley clay soils which included a number of clones, 667, 777, 115, Abel and Clone 5. Both vineyards were pruned to 2 cane Vertical Shoot Positioning and yields were naturally around the 7 Tonnes per Hectare mark. After green thinning on the vine the fruit was harvested over a period of 10 days from late March through to early April . Each parcel was kept separate and fermented in small open top tanks and hand plunged up to 4 times daily. Post pressing, wine was sent to a mixture of stainless steel and French oak for Malolactic fermentation and ageing.
