Wine Description

(2004 Vintage) Brilliant fruit flavors and intense varietal character are the hallmarks of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. Often reminiscent of gooseberries, lychees and other tropical fruits, the intense flavors of this exuberant wine are backed up with bracing acidity. Vinification methods retain the freshness of the distinctive fruit characteristics with a portion barrel-fermented to enhance palate structure. Enjoy this wine in its youth for its startlingly fresh, racy aromas and tangy, flavorsome palate.

    (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.
