Pinot Gris is harvested from estate and grower vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys, throughout the cool of night to retain flavour and freshness. Grapes are gently pressed and the juices inoculated through choice strains of yeast which are selected for their capacity to enhance the nose and palate.

Clifford Bay

Clifford Bay harvest fruit from both estate and grower vineyards located in Marlborough’s two marquee regions: the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. All vineyards are Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand certified. Awatere Valley takes its name from the local river and is the cooler of the two regions. It features a unique stony Greywacke alluvium soil that is well draining and ideal for grapes. Wines from Awatere tend to be high toned, ethereal, vibrant and minerally. Wairau Valley is located to the north of Awatere, this region derives its name from the Wairau River which flows from the mountains in the west to the ocean at Cloudy Bay. It possesses shallow, stony, fast-draining soils that encourage low yields and powerful, bracing wines.

Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc is all about expressive fruit flavours. The wine possesses a light straw colour and tropical aromas of guava, melon and citrus. The palate exhibits the same fine flavours followed by a crisp, dry, flinty finish. One of the charms of our Pinot Gris is its subtle elegance. The wine delivers aromas of pear, apple and spice followed by flavours that are round and concentrated. The lively finish possesses the distinctive minerality found in all of Clifford Bay wines.

Clifford Bay Pinot Noir is always a wine of elegance and balance. The bright garnet colour opens the door for vibrant aromatics packed with black cherries, violets, red fruits and spicy French oak. The flavours are intensely fruity, lush and delicious. As with every Clifford Bay wine, fruit is the focal point in the Chardonnay. A subtle dash of wood only enhances the citrus, apple and pear notes in the nose and on the palate.
