Blend: 80% Pinot Noir + 20% Syrah
From: New Zealand, Aotearoa, Marlborough
By: Cambridge Road
Created from lovingly tended Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes on Cambridge Road, a small biodynamic vineyard on New Zealand’s North Island. Cloudwalker Rouge is a medium bodied red intended to be playful and approachable – and we all like our red wine to be approachable.
Cambridge Road Vineyard lies in the shadow of the beautiful Tararua and Rimutaka. Mountain ranges. The days are dry, the nights fresh and the vineyard owner, Lance Redgwell, devoted to produced fine, artisanal wines. For Lance, small is beautiful, a principal that allows him to farm the land with nature foremost in mind. The grapes for Cloudwalker Rouge are harvested from a young hillside vineyard, then fermented for ten months in oak barrels with indigenous yeast.
