My opinion of this wine is better than the reviews I read. This is a very different flavor profile from American, west coast pinots. It has similar red fruit— cherries, blackberries, etc. — but the flavors are dried down, almost to the husk. Not fresh fruit. There’s also some bramble, dill, green pepper, stone, and ash. Plus just enough barnyard funk to be good. There’s moderate to strong acidity, and some medium tannins. It’s not all perfectly integrated, but it’s interesting, and a good value. — a month ago
Good morning! Breakfast of champions at our hotel which, is run by the producer of Clouds wine.
This is very pleasant. Not overly mineral driven which, can be the case with some producers in the area. Like, the complementary Delaire Graff sparkling poured at their restaurant last night.
Nose of, bright light citrus blend, Jasmine, spring flowers and lilies.
The body is rich. Light citrus blend, pineapple, touch of tropical melons, medium intensity volcanic minerals, nice chalkiness, Good acidity and a pleasant rich finish.
Photos of, the view from our hotel Clouds breakfast terrace, that beautiful red clay they are excavating for vine planting in the center of the hotel, cold breakfast bar and inside restaurant seating. — 10 hours ago
Underripe to ripe red fruit, cherry cola, black tea. Very quaffable. Medium body, light oak influence and very good length. Maybe a bit pricey but still delicious. — 5 days ago
drinking a very nice New Zealand pinot LOST in Hong Kong 🇭🇰! Could be worse right?? — 9 days ago
Little bit of bike tire reduction outta the gate, but it cleans up in a hurry. This is pure Chambolle-Musigny. The best NZ pinot I've had. Focused, perfumed, and just the right kinda musky. Red currant, blood orange, potting soil, and kelp. Wonderfully melted tannin, finesse for days. Has a long life ahead of it. — 18 days ago
