Winery notes (NV)
"Pelorus is the definitive New Zealand sparkling wine, and has been since 1987. Crafted using the time-honoured méthode traditionnelle, Pelorus is widely acclaimed for its elegance, finesse and complexity. Its deliciously crisp and balanced flavours make it the perfect bottle for any occasion.

The Pelorus is crisp and balanced. The pale straw colour and aromas of ripe citrus hint at its Chardonnay origins. On the nose, a bouquet of apple and lemon complements the aromas of fresh bread, drawn from two years’ bottle ageing on lees."

5 Stars Michael Cooper, September 2023 (NV)
"'Designed as an aperitif', Cloudy Bay's non-vintage Marlborough bubbly is a Chardonnay-dominant style, with 30 per cent Pinot Noir, grown in the Wairau Valley and hand-picked. The base wines are fermented and aged in tanks, large oak vats and small French oak barrels, and the bottle-fermented blend is matured for at least two years on its yeast lees, before it is disgorged. It is typically refined, tightly structured and elegant. The pale straw sample I tasted in mid 2023 has a very yeasty bouquet. Complex and vigorous, it has intense, citrusy, peachy, biscuity flavours, and a very harmonious, persistent finish."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (NV)
"Rich, mouth filling Methode with plenty of bready, biscuity yeast autolysis supported by subtle citrus fruit flavours. This wine has a great texture, real power, an impeccable balance and a delicious texture. I cannot remember it being this good."

Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2021 (NV)
"Aromas of lemon and apple, a fine lees autolysis, white peach and an overall harmonious elegant synergy. Wonderfully explosive mousse with a youthful fresh energy, quite captivating and fresh with flavours of citrus and white fleshed tree fruits, a core of fine lees and pastry baked goods. Balanced, crisp, refreshing, dry and ready. Best drinking from purchase and through 2026+. Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir."

Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 94/100 NZ Wine Rater, March 2022 (NV)
"Pale lemon in colour. A complex, attractive, lees-derived bouquet showing hints of strawberry, raspberry, toasted hazelnuts, and buttered popcorn. A very tasty wine expressing elegance, complexity, weight, with a creamy mousse, delicate acidity and wide commercial appeal."

5 Stars & Top 10 Cuisine Sparkling Tasting, October 2018 (NV)
"Creamy and soft, bright flavours of lemon and red fruits are counterbalanced with savoury bread, mushroom and meal. The package is completed with a balanced line and a dusting of chalk."

Cloudy Bay is proudly numbered among Marlborough's trailblazing first five wine makers, who staked their claims at a time when it was virtually impossible to envision how the area would be transformed and thrive as a world-leading wine region. David Hohnen, Cloudy Bay's founder, had faith in the land's latent viticultural potential which gave him a headstart on developing some of its most suitable land.

Cloudy Bay takes its name from an expanse of water named by explorer James Cook. The sea was cloudy at the time, full of sediment from recent flooding run-off. The moniker captures the evocative quality of the transitory nature of New Zealand's land and seascapes - befitting for an accomplished wine producer.

At the heart of Cloudy Bay's wine-making philosophy is the desire to get the absolute best out of their world-class vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago - carving out an unmistakable style made possible only through a deep understanding of grape and terroir combinations.

Central Otago is the world's most southern wine region and Cloudy Bay works hard to harness the best of its continental terroir, in a location where site selection is critical, to produce distinctively Central Otago notes of dark fruit and wild mountain herbs. Further north in Marlborough, Cloudy Bay sauvignons burst with bright expressive aromatics, with beautiful citrus and stone fruit characters shining forth.
