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.

Making notes on this awhile after the tasting, so I won't say much...but holy crap, does this wine ever have grapefruit notes! Really lovely and memorable in that regard. Also slightly grassy on the nose. No mistake, the first whiff indicates that this one is a sauv blanc. Kind of viscous - not as light bodied as I expected. Great acid. Thought this was a very good wine, but I need to spend more time with it (and take proper notes next time).

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

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.

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.

'Tangerine, mango and citrus flavors are pure and focused, smooth, round and wonderfully refreshing, with peach, Key lime pie, mineral and floral elements that really take off on the finish.', Wine Spectator 92 Points

Quitte und Passionsfrucht, frisch geschnittene Basilikumblätter vollendet durch einen Hauch Zitronengras. Der Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc zeichnet sich durch seine Frische sowie durch seinen typisch würzigen Charakter aus.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of elderfl ower, green lime zest, and stone fruit. The palate is ripe, fine and succulent, offering zesty ripe citrus fl avours coupled with an edge of minerality and sweet herbs. A small barrel ferment component gives balancing flesh to the wine’s crisp refreshing acidity. A classic wine from an outstanding season.
