(From «nv» Vintage) This wine shows an abundance of passion fruit, lime, grapefruit with just the right amount of grassiness.
(From 2014 Vintage) Pale straw green in colour and mouth-wateringly fragrant, the 2003 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of a mid-summer kitchen ... ripe passionfruit, yellow plums, juicy limes and freshly picked basil. The palate is pure and refreshing with all the hallmarks of a small but perfectly formed crop ... flavours that echo the aromas, with piercing concentration, impeccably balanced acidity ...and a long, crisp finish.
Wine & Spirits(From 2008 Vintage) Tangerine, mango and citrus flavors are pure and focused, smooth, round and wonderfully refreshing, with peach, Key lime pie, mineral, and floral elements that really take off on the finish. Drink now.
