The Marlboroug DO is one of the most famous and important areas in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay is one of the first 5 wineries that have been established in this DO, which quickly got great international recognition. The area lies in the north of the southern island of New Zealand, and it is the region that produces up to 50% of the wine of the country every year.
Scottish David Herd was the one who planted the first vineyard in this area. Because of the young soil, and its style of Sauvignon Blanc, perfect harmony is achieved. The dry autumns are perfect for the grapes to ripen slowly.
There is also another important thing that gives more intensity to the Marlboroug wines: temperature differences between day and night.
The variety found in its soil allows wine producers two options for their crops. Their stocks can include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the first being the most widely cultivated strain.
