Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2013

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.

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.

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.

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 name Cloudy Bay has become synonymous with outstanding New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Captain Cook coined the phrase on his voyage to New Zealand in 1770, giving the name to the bay at the east end of Wairau Valley. The winery and vineyards are situated there at the northern end of New Zealand's South Island. This unique, cool wine growing region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. The winery owns over 200 acres of estate vineyards there and continues to turn out some of New Zealand’s best wines. This 2013 is as ripe and pure as ever. Rich flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, mango and melon with wonderfully refreshing acidity and lime and mineral notes on the finish.
