1996 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) A dry style with very appealing mouth feel and a nice mix of mineral, lemon grass, gooseberry and riper red capsicum flavours. Long.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Straw green with aromas of fresh herbs, quince and pineapple, the Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2000 shows racy aromatics typical of a cooler Marlborough vintage. The palate has great concentration with flavours reminiscent of ripe mango and pears finishing with crisp, juicy acidity.

    (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.
