Love it, but with it can be expensive if you don't look. I've seen this anywhere from $15 to $30. It's good but perhaps not a great value unless you find it on sale near that $15 range.

I have to be honest and say I was really looking forward to opening this bottle simply because of the fame but afterwards I was left thoroughly disappointed. A real green tint once poured, massive apple flavour straight away before a real sharpness takes over. Although drinkable, I can't help but feel the price dictated there should be more to it as I have had other Sauvignon Blanc's for a lot less which have just as much going for them as this. The hype is overblown.

Crisp, juicy with notes of citrus. Will evolve in the glass or as the bottle sits out and also show spicy or floral notes. Even though for some reason I continue to think it is overpriced for what it is, I keep coming back. I think I've bougt it a half dozen times.

Scented and summery, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc has deliciously vibrant aromatics that infuse the tropical fragrance of fresh passionfruit and juicy pineapples with garden-fresh basil and the spiciness of crushed tomato leaves. The palate is long and succulent, combining exotic fruits with ripe, red capsicum and a twist of green olive... beautifully complemented by crisp natural acidity and a hint of lime zest.

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc presents pleasantly intense notes of gooseberries, fresh grass and green apples with hints of capsicum and dill seed. Medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing on the palate thanks to plenty of vibrant citrus and vegetal flavors, it finishes long with some silkiness to the mouthfeel. Drink it now to 2016.

Graceful and elegant, with spice, Meyer lemon and quince notes up front. This is silky smooth but shows tremendous power on the finish, where crisp, clean acidity and flavors of mineral, ruby grapefruit and stone fruit crescendo. Drink now.

A struck-flint note on the nose gives this wine a touch of fumé character, and the familiar tropical fruit and overt green notes seem reined-in for this vintage. Those attributes actually make the 2013 an easier match with food, as does the racy line of acids that impart a crisp, citrusy feel from start to finish.

Generosity is the defining word for the 2009 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. Its aromatics encapsulate a broad spectrum of varietal flavors; tropical fragrances of guava and mango to ripe lime/citrus and

Winemaker's Notes:

Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are the first to emerge from the nose of our 2013 sauvignon blanc, followed by nectarine and lemongrass tones. The palate is fresh and focused with ripe citrus, stonefruit, fennel and mineral notes lingering on the persistent finish. Our sauvignon blanc is a delicious partner to a tomato and goat curd salad drizzled with fresh basil oil.
