2020 Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

95 Points Bob Campbell MW
In stock
An icon of Malborough Sauvignon Blanc, Cloudy Bay lives up to its reputation. This gorgeous juice is fermented in crisp, fresh steel (apart from a tiny fraction, which sees some oak for added texture) and the wine comes out weighty, expressive and complex. Although they are world famous, Cloudy Bay isn't resting on laurels -- but still throwing everything into the finest vineyard management and winemaking possible. Don't assume you know it -- try it.

Its Origins

Established in 1985 by Cape Mentelle, Cloudy Bay Vineyards is situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has estate vineyards located at prime sites within the Wairau Valley, and long-term supply agreements with five Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, and pinot noir with lesser quantities of gewurztraminer, Riesling, and pinot gris.

What The Critics Say

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Intense and quite weighty sauvignon blanc with passionfruit, lime zest, gooseberry, red and green capsicum and subtle oyster-shell flavours, supported by deliciously tangy acidity that drives a lengthy finish. 17 SEP 2020." Drink 2020 - 2025
