Wine Description

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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are the first to emerge from the nose of our 2013 sauvignon blanc, followed by nectarine and lemongrass tones. The palate is fresh and focused with ripe citrus, stonefruit, fennel and mineral notes lingering on the persistent finish.
