Cloudy Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tonight I was drawn back to the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and I opened the 2020 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. This winery is the epitome of Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand. I have had several of their Sauvignon Blanc's and they seem to express what sauvignon blanc is supposed to be.

On the nose there are pungent aromas of grapefruit, lime, white peach, green apple, mango, cut grass and mineral notes.

On the palate there are loads of citrus fruit, grapefruit, white peach, key lime, passionfruit, guava and minerals.

This wine is light to medium bodied with a crisp clean mouthfeel with mouthwatering high acidity that leads to a long citrus mineral finish. These past several days have been very moving with weather that has shaken our area to its very core. Thunderstorms, tornado warnings and tornadoes, and heavy rains over several days and seem that they will continue for at least a few more days. I hope everyone's week is going s bit easier and please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

@romo You’d think Frankly! But I was in the area and popped into USQ Wines. They have a little New York section
