Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points James Suckling: Really striking aromatics. Unmistakable passion fruit and lime citrus with subtle grassy and herbal complexity. The bold, flamboyant fruit is what takes center stage here. There's a fleshy, succulent feel to the palate. Acidity keeps it vibrant and the flavors hold fresh and lively. As appealing as ever. Drink now. (10/25/16)

Nose: A vibrant mix of kaffir lime, lemon zest and nectarine aromatics intermingle with the bright perfume of orange blossom Palate: Brimming with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours that are framed by sleek and succulent acid architecture Harvest: The Sauvignon Blanc harvest commenced on March 31st and was complete on April 14th. Fruit was picked over a range of 22.7-20.8 °Bx with excellent flavours and acid balance. Vinification: Following harvest, the free-run juice was cold settled for 48-72 hours before racking. Fermentation was primarily carried out in stainless steel tanks with a mixture of cultured yeasts and wild yeast. Approximately 3% of the blend was fermented at warmer temperature in old French oak barriques and large format vats. As usual our Sauvignon was stringently blended, including only the strongest batches.
