Cloudy Bay New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
The wine that put New Zealand in the wine map
"Classic, pungent, herbaceous bouquet of pink grapefruit, tropical fruit, apple and fresh herbs. Equally urgent on the palate, with high acidity and flavours of passion fruit, pineapple, lemon, basil, white peach, flowers, hay and stony minerality. Delicious, fresh, crunchy texture and a lengthy finish." 94 points (2020 vintage), Decanter Magazine
Following the harvest, the free-run juice was cold settled, before racking and inoculation with selected yeast. Fermentation was carried out primarily in stainless steel tanks, with approximately 4% of the blend fermented at warmer temperatures in old French oak barriques and large format oak vats. As usual, our Sauvignon Blanc was blended stringently from 91 different portions to include only the best. The final blend shows an alcohol of 13.2%
