(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of elderflower, green lime zest, and stone fruit. The palate is ripe, fine and succulent, offering zesty ripe citrus flavors coupled with an edge of minerality and sweet herbs. A small barrel ferment component gives balancing flesh to the wine's crisp refreshing acidity.
Pale green and fragrant with aromas of guava and fresh basil, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 1999 shows all the hallmarks of an excellent Marlborough vintage. The intensely flavored, mouth-watering palate displays a delicious combination of herbal and tropical flavors uplifted by crisp, refreshing acidity.
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.
