新西蘭 Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc

Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay Vineyards is situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand’s South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has estate vineyards located at prime sites within the Wairau Valley, and long-term supply agreements with five Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir with lesser quantities of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Gris.

The winery takes its name from the bay at the eastern extremity of the Wairau Valley, which was named Cloudy Bay by Captain Cook on his voyage to New Zealand in 1770.

Marlborough, New Zealand

Grape Variety:
Sauvignon Blanc

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 temperatures in old French oak barriques and large format vats. As usual our sauvignon blanc was stringently blended, including only the strongest batches.

Tasting Notes:
Bright, lifted citrus aromatics of kaffir lime and grapefruit abound, supported by ripe nectarine-like stone fruit notes.
An elegant, concentrated palate reveals ripe, juicy stone fruit and lemongrass, supported by a lovely minerality.
