“ A challenging season was carefully managed in the vineyard, producing an elegant and expressive pinot noir.”

Te Wahi means ‘The Place’ in Maori, a name chosen because we believe that great Pinot Noir speaks eloquently of its place of origin. Te Wahi is a different expression of Pinot Noir on our journey to discover the best vineyard sites and terroir for this grape variety in New Zealand, this time in Central Otago.

“Plush and elegant, with raspberry coulis, wild strawberry and bright cherry flavors that are elevated with layers of spice, smoky tea, pepper, Asian spice and fresh earth notes.” Rating 91 - MaryAnn Worobiec Wine Spectator, June 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Our Te Wahi 2011 speaks eloquently of its vintage.


The perfumed nose reveals subtle aromas of cherry, red liquorice and florals.


The palate is plush yet defined and balanced. Dark fruit up front finishes to sour cherry with notes of leather, smoke and bittersweet chocolate. Dusty tannins linger on an elegant but generous finish.

Food Matching

Lean wild game such as venison or thar is an ideal companion to our 2011 Te Wahi.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Cloudy Bay Vineyards was established in 1985 by Cape Mentelle Vineyards in Western Australia, and is today part of Estates & Wines, The Moët Hennessy Wine Division. Innovation, meticulous attention to detail and regional expression are the guiding principles of Cloudy Bay. The Cloudy Bay team is committed to producing ‘wines of region’ and strives to enhance the pure, bracing flavours and stunning vibrancy, naturally afforded by the climate and soils of Marlborough.

The winery and vineyards are situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand's South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has 250 hectares over four estate vineyards, and long-term supply agreements with nine Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir with lesser quantities of gewurztraminer, riesling, and pinot gris.

Cloudy Bay wines are exported to over 30 markets, the principal ones being Australia, United Kingdom, USA, Europe and Japan. Cloudy Bay believes that the future success of specialist wineries lies in the production of high quality wines from varieties best suited to specific regions. At Cloudy Bay, emphasis is placed on individual fruit character and the development of a recognisable estate wine style.

Cloudy Bay Vineyards was a founding member of the New Zealand Integrated Winegrape Production scheme, set up to develop a programme for sustainable vineyard management, which is now monitored by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. Cloudy Bay’s impeccable scorecard reflects the company’s commitment to environmentally friendly winery and vineyard management practices.

The winery takes its name from the bay at the eastern extremity of the Wairau Valley, which was named Cloudy Bay by Captain Cook on his voyage to New Zealand in 1770. At the time of Cook’s discovery, Marlborough was in flood and the Wairau River running into the bay was full of silt creating cloudy waters.
