Cloudy Bay's Sauvignon Blanc was the New Zealand shot heard around the wine world. Today, they still prove to be leaders with the grape. Drawn from the Wairau Valley, if you like Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, it's hard not to be captivated by Cloudy Bay's. Explosive and beaming with its audacious greenness, the wine shouts of oregano, green pepper, thyme, tomato leaf, and most every other classic flavor you can associate with New Zealand SB. Cloudy Bay's still got it - and with the 2017 you can taste their mastery.

Pungent aromas of grapefruit, cat pee and wet stone. Citrus and minerals on the palate. Great compliment to fish.

Classic Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc clean and crisp with an delightful explosion of citrus in your month. The perfect match for sitting by the fire on a cold and snowy Canadian Rockies weekend. Enjoy.

Sauvignon Blanc 04: similar in nose to Herzog sur lie, green, greengage, yeasty, leesy, savoury and nutty. Toasted?! Fuller, savoury, yeasty, with a creamy note. Light in acid but very interesting. Green, savoury, and nutty. Interesting long length! 91

I keep on following cloudy as it is most probably the most famous NZ SB out there, at least at the high end tier. I have enjoyed this wine in many vintages it never disappoints, I think that in general my taste evolved and find myself enjoying this fruity tropical style less and less. This being said it is still a great wine that goes well with sea food of Asian food. With its light color, splendid tropical nots, touch of citrus, medium body and good acidity it easily scores 87 point, drink to 2019
