Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2010
My Rating 87: I'm not a fan of white wines! This has a nice nose of Apple aroma which also shows up in the taste. The body is dry as it should be . The wine overall very drinkable. Price was good at Costco. On sale for under $ 7.-
Clifford Bay has become my go to Sauvignon Blanc, as I am recovering Kim Crawford addict. Hailing from the renowned Awatere Valley, adding tropical flavors along with crisp and smooth minerality. This wine has room-filling aromas of guava, grapefruit and hints of moist grass. On the palate this wine's bursts with flavors of tropical and citrus fruits and has a balanced amount of mouth watering acidity. More on the "guava-side" of sauvignon blancs, this one has become one of my daily go-to's. Enjoy.
External Reviews for Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc
The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc has intense aromas of fresh grass, hay, gooseberry and pineapple chunks. There's a good concentration of passion fruit and fresh herbs on the medium bodied palate with crisp acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2013. Either someone has their calculations wrong or this winery is selling its wine into the US well below the New Zealand recommended retail prices, because if the prices I've been given are correct then this pair from Clifford Bay offers amazing value!
