Archive Release Box is from the legendary Kevin Judd, founding winemaker of Cloudy Bay, whose wines became somewhat of a phenomenon. This is a case of 3 wines (2 bottles of each) from outstanding vintages.
Each variety is farmed and vinified using techniques meant to produce distinct wine styles, with the unifying goal of delivering flavour concentration and a harmonious balance of texture and acidity. Minimal intervention winemaking is utilised to create wines with personality and character, aiming for delicate, ripe, and delightfully drinkable styles.
- Pinot Noir 2014 is a very feminine style of Marlborough pinot. With fruitcake-like richness on the palate, substantial weight, and traditional cool-climate vitality, it offers vine-ripened red and black berries aromas, with dried oregano and some cloves notes. A delicately smokey infusion and exotic fruit richness in a beautifully fragrant red wine.
- Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2014 with aromas of linseed, tarragon, and delicately smoked tea-laced almond friand filled with white nectarine, blood orange, and rockmelon. This is a complex and textured dry white, produced by fermenting Sauvignon Blanc exclusively with natural wild yeast; an alternative style to the classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
- Chardonnay 2014 is full of savoury fragrances of almond nougat, vanilla beans, and marzipan combined with the seductive flavours of cumquats, peaches, and yellow grapefruit, creating an extravagant mixture with a charred smokiness. With a superbly dry, rich, and robust palate, this white offers great structure and concentration.
