Cloudy Bay - Pelorus Vintage 2009Sparkling Wine
The Pelorus Vintage exhibits rich and complex aromas of brioche, nougat and almond biscotti, overlying subtle red apple and citrus fruit.
The wine has a deliciously creamy palate structure that is balanced and focussed by a fine acid backbone.
Fruit was harvested from predominantly 4 cane vines from the Rapaura and Fairhall regions.
A lighter than average yield of about 9T/ha allowed for early development of flavours and an early harvest.
