Cloudy Bay is the best known name in New Zealand wine and for good reason. Their Sauvignon Blanc has such terrific purity, intensity and poise. Such lovely ripeness of fruit vying with crispness and tension. Enjoy this brilliant, 91-point white.
"In full tropical fruit mode, bursting with passion fruit and limes, as well as sweet melon and peach"
James Suckling 91 Points
Since David Hohnen of renowned Cape Mentelle in Western Australia launched his show stopping Cloudy Bay Sauvignon in the 1980s, wine drinkers have been in awe of its charm. This wine is impressively fresh and intense, with an understated brilliance that sets it apart from more exuberant Sauvignons. The Cloudy Bay estate lies in Wairau Valley, Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island. It takes its name from the most easterly point of the valley, named Cloudy Bay by the explorer Captain James Cook when he first discovered the region in 1770. Despite late rains, the 91 point 2018 is one of the finest ever made, declares viticulturalist Jim White. Truly refreshing. it’s great solo or with seafood or spicy Thai dishes.
