2009 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Wine Description

(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.

Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw green in colour and mouth-wateringly fragrant, the 2003 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of a mid-summer kitchen ... ripe passionfruit, yellow plums, juicy limes and freshly picked basil. The palate is pure and refreshing with all the hallmarks of a small but perfectly formed crop ... flavours that echo the aromas, with piercing concentration, impeccably balanced acidity ...and a long, crisp finish.
