More information on wine critics and ratings

Rich cherry and plum fruit that is spiced with oak notes of cinnamon and clove. Sitting below the fruit, earthen and mineral smokiness, which is lifted by hedonistic floral notes.

Decadently sweet fruited and richly textured. The density of the wine is counter balanced by bright acidity and supple tannins.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 93 Points (2017)
Powerful yet elegant, offering fresh strawberry and raspberry flavors at the core, with soft, polished tannins and complex notes of palo santo, forest floor and white chocolate that show dried sage and toasted green tea details. Drink now through 2036.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2017)
A complex nose with plenty of woody spice and herbal nuances, ahead of strawberries and bright red cherries. The palate delivers attractively detailed, fine tannin and fragrant, pink and red fruit abounds in a fine, fresh mode. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2017)
The early promise shown by Cloudy Bay's incursion into Central Otago is finally being fulfilled, as the 2016 Te Wahi Pinot Noir is the best example yet to emerge from the company's Northburn vineyard. It shows delicate floral and herbal aromas, hints of tea and roses on the nose. It's big and expansive on the palate, delivering mouth-filling cherry fruit before finishing with crisp acids, silky tannins and a hint of mocha.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2015)
Jim White blends this wine from two sites, Northburn in Lowburn and Calvert in Bannockburn. It’s a meaty Central Otago pinot, with crunchy red fruit that’s an equal match to the powerful oak and its heady, resinous richness. A heavyweight pinot without any excess fat, it’s built to cellar, or to decant for braised short ribs.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 96 Points (2014)
Dense and flavoursome pinot noir with succulent dark cherry, violet, dark-fleshed plum and a strong influence of nutty oak supported by a backbone of ripe tannins that leave a drying finish. An initial velvet texture with a peppery finish. Good drinking now but will certainly develop with bottle age.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2014)
Cloudy Bay's latest vintage is the first from their own vineyards in Central Otago and reflects a step up in quality despite a challenging vintage. Plummy fruit dominates the rather chunky wine, framed by hints of toast and dried herbs, while moderately dusty tannins and bright acids mark the finish. Drink 2018–2025.
