Beautifully smooth, explosive green and citrus flavor with a razor-sharp crispness that zings the back of the tongue. I adore this wine. Whitehaven was once my favorite, but Cloudy Bay's Sauvignon Blanc is so much sharper and more focused.

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.

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. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc opens with intense grapefruit, passion fruit and green mango notes and touches of pineapple and fresh sage. Medium-bodied with a fair amount of viscosity to the texture, it has lively acid and a long finish. Drinking well now, it should keep to 2014+. Marked by intensity, precision and focus, this delivers peppery details to the juicy lemon, apple and lime zest notes supported by a crisp frame. Offers a refreshing finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 40,000 cases imported. -MW ** SOLD OUT **

Scented and summery, the 2008 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.

Mouth-watering aromas of passionfruit and lemongrass led with the spiciness of just-picked tomatoes tossed with fresh basil. Many small parcels of fruit, ripened under ideal conditions, bring layers of complexity to the 2007 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. The palate has exceptional richness, with ripe gooseberry flavours and a hint of fresh fennel leading to a powerful, crisp finish.

The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of elderflower, green lime zest, and stone fruit. The palate is ripe, fine and succulent, offering zesty ripe citrus flavors coupled with an edge of minerality and sweet herbs. A small barrel ferment component g

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.
