CLOUDS PINOT NOIR 2016


CLOUDS CHENIN BLANC 2017     -

 

 



TASTING NOTES

 This wine was made from old bush vines grown in Wellington.  The wine was raised in concrete egg and amphora to truly reflect only the old vine chenin character.  On the nose expect tropical notes of nectarine and ripe pear with a textural complex palate typical of this grape. 

 

Fermented naturally and then matured for 10 months before bottling, 

 

 

ENJOY

This classic example of old vine chenin goes great with a variety of seafood dishes and creamy pastas.  It has enough acidity to hold its own and cut through the richness of these foods. 

 

  

 

AGING POTENTIAL

Drink now or over the next 5 years.

CLOUDS
METHODE CAP CLASSIQUE 2014

 
TASTING NOTES


The wine shows fresh yeasty aromas on the nose. The palate is clean and crisp, with green apple and a delicious sweet/sour character, leading to a long, creamy finish. This wine is made from 100% chardonnay grapes and spent 12 months on the lees, adding extra finesse. 

 

ENJOY

This wine has celebration written all over it, and goes extremely well smoked salmon or grilled tuna.  We particularly

like it with breakfast, we serve it daily on our breakfast buffet.

Bright and pure with a light salmon colour.  This sauvignon with its splash of syrah show freshly cut berries and perfume on the nose.  The palate is delicate with hints of wild strawberries complimented by a vibrant acidity from the sauvignon blanc grape.

CLOUDS PINOT NOIR 2016



TASTING NOTES

 

 

 This pinot is more fruit forward and concentrated than previous vintages and much more intense in colour as a result of adding a Stellenbosch component grown on Clouds Estate.  The nose is deep and brooding and shows a medley of perfumed red and black fruit with typical sour cherry, wild strawberries and also some earthy undertones.  It is a wine that is complex and fresh at the same time with just the right balance of acidity as backbone. 


 

ENJOY

This red beauty will age well – that’s assuming you manage to resist drinking it before then. In summer, it is delicious when chilled, served just a few degrees below room temperature.

 CLOUDS SAUVIGNON BLANC 2017

Clouds vinyards

CLOUDS CHARDONNAY 2015

 


TASTING NOTES

 

 This wine shows rich, leesy characteristics with crushed sea-shells, citrus and freshly cut limes. The palate is very focused and minerally driven, complemented by loads of yellow stone fruit.  

 

Mostly fruit from the estate was used, with some fruit from the Koue Bokkeveld area, minimal interference in the cellar was incorporated.

CLOUDS 

SAUVIGNON BLANC 2017


TASTING NOTES

 

A tropical nose with some upfront mineral notes, this wine displays bright aromas of granadilla and more subtle nuances of gooseberry.  This follows through to a crisp dry wine on the palate with a distinct lingering finish.  A real crowd pleaser.  

 

 

ENJOY

Ice cold, on its own or goes well with a variety of dishes.  Save it for a year (if you can) because it will only become better with age.


BLEND INFORMATION

100% sauvignon blanc

 

AGING POTENTIAL

To be enjoyed now, but will mature well for another 2-4years.

CLOUDS SHIRAZ 2015



TASTING NOTES


 

This Shiraz shows very perfumed purple fruit on the nose which also leads to the palate. The concentration and density of the Shiraz is balanced by good acid tension and delicate fruit. Soft and textured with loads of dark spice and a mineral finish.  Wine was oaked for 18 months in seasoned casks (no new oak) and only 9 barrels was produced. The wine was left to ferment naturally, and 30% of the bunches were whole pressed.

 

 

 

 

ENJOY

This wine is the perfect choice with game dishes.  Chef Cole paired it with crispy pork belly and Cajun spices for the Clouds tasting plates. 

 

AGEING POTENTIAL

Drink now or over the next 8 years.


BLEND INFORMATION

100% Shiraz

ENJOY

A very distinctive wine which shows great potential for aging and will pair brilliantly with fresh oysters
