Region Marlborough

Marlborough Arguably New Zealand’s most famous wine region owing to international demand for Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough is also the largest wine producing region in the country, comprising 79% of New Zealand’s total wine production. Modern winemaking commenced in Marlborough in the 1970s and from tiny beginnings, the vineyard area has rapidly expanded now encompassing 23,600 hectares. Marlborough is located on the east coast of the South Island, with mountains to the west creating a rain shadow, making it one of the driest and sunniest regions in New Zealand. There are three sub regions in Marlborough, the largest being the Wairau Valley, where most plantings are concentrated on free draining alluvial soils.

The soils across all three regions all have relatively low fertility to help curb the vigour of Sauvignon Blanc vines that dominate Marlborough. Although the region built its reputation on crisp, distinctively pungent unoaked Sauvignon Blanc, there is an increasing trend towards more complex barrel-ferment styles. Light-bodied, fruit driven Pinot Noir is also successful.

Winery CLOUDY BAY

David Hohnen, the founder of Cape Mentelle in Margaret River, Western Australia, established Cloudy Bay in Marlborough New Zealand in 1985. The first commercial vintage made that same year was produced from purchased grapes. The company later planted its own vineyards, which now total 140 ha over three different sites in the Wairau Valley. Most of the vineyards are anchored on free draining alluvial gravel soils. Considered a pioneer of the Marlborough region, the winery played a pivotal role in showcasing the potential for premium Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough. Best known for its premium Sauvignon Blanc, Cloudy Bay also produces sparkling wines under the Pelorous brand, in addition to Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir among others.
