    Product Description

    Founded in 1985, Cloudy Bay is one of New Zealand's most iconic premium wine estates. Its Sauvignon Blanc put New Zealand on the world wine map, forever changing the perception of new world wines and Sauvignon Blanc as a variety. Cloudy Bay's legacy began with Sauvignon Blanc. A flagship New Zealand wine since its first vintage, it is world-famous for its quality and consistency.

    Cloudy Bay's Sauvignon Blanc vineyards sit across three sub-regions in the heart of Wairau Valley. Free-draining gravelly soils and the valley's maritime climate combine to create the perfect conditions for growing Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The resulting wines are pure, vibrant, and full of concentrated stone fruit, citrus, and subtle tropical characters. This is the Cloudy Bay benchmark style.

    The palate is vibrant and mouthwatering, with concentrated, juicy tropical notes melding with zesty citrus, stone fruits, and subtle notes of orchard blossom. The palate is underpinned by a lively grapefruit acidity, carrying the intense fruit characters through to an impressively long finish.

    It's everything you'd expect a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region to be. It is ready to chill and enjoy now - or it will happily spend another ten years in the cellar for a more prosperous, more complex result.

    Tasting Notes

    Aroma: On the nose, there are enticing aromas of ripe honeydew melon, passion fruit, citrus, and a touch of fresh blackcurrant leaf.

    Palate: The wine is concentrated and elegant on the palate, with hints of fresh sea air balancing out the warmth of the ripe fruit flavors. Refreshing notes of makrut lime, lemongrass, lemon, and a touch of grapefruit skin underpin subtle tropical fruit characteristics.
