The Marlborough region is blessed with a unique terroir where a cool, maritime South Pacific climate produces wines of great fruit intensity.
Widely regarded as the quintessential expression of the acclaimed Marlborough wine region, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is an international benchmark wine noted for its vibrant aromatics, layers of pure fruit flavours, and fine structure.
A vintage rarely comes along as relaxed and settled as 2014 and it gave Cloudy Bay the opportunity to make decisions in the vineyard with minimal consideration for weather impact. The season was capitalised on and the resulting wine displays a set of aromas and flavours that the Cloudy Bay team particularly enjoy.
Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are the first to emerge from the nose of our 2015 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.
