The Cloud Factory Pinot Noir
From maritime vineyards in Marlborough’s south easterly extremes in the Blind River Valley. Classic cranberry and wild strawberry give enough bite and texture to be foody but generous enough to be a delicious glass on its own. A lick of oak in the winemaking gives a smidge of vanillan charm.
After green thinning on the vine the fruit was harvested over a period of 10 days from late March through to early April . Fermented in small open top tanks and hand plunged up to 4 times daily. Post pressing, the juice was sent to a mixture of stainless steel and French oak for Malo and ageing.
