Cloudy Bay never fails to rise above the rest with their distinctive take on Sauvignon Blanc. This shows incredible complexity with an expansive, unfolding deliciousness that really needs to be experienced. The winemaking style here goes against the grain, born of a little playful experimentation that developed into something special and well worth a taste – and possibly a case.
Pristine aromas of sliced limes, lemons, green melon and hints of lemon grass follow through to a full body with dense fruit, yet framed by a lightly phenolic texture that holds the whole thing together, tightening the fruit in the center-palate. Beautiful finish. One of the best ever. Drink now. Screw cap.
Intense and focused, with wonderful purity and sophistication to the fresh yuzu, vetevier, sea salt, Meyer lemon and fresh grated ginger flavors. Sleek and mouthwatering, while the intensity continues to gain on the finish.
