Cloudy Bay



Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Austere, dry wine with lovely minerality plus lemon grass, wild herb and a hint of tropical fruit. Good food wine. Impressive fruit purity and power. Tight, long, and with an ethereal texture.

    light but with some tropical hints on finish. Typical gooseberry nose. Good aperitif

    (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.
