Since then, innovation, meticulous attention to detail and regional expression have been the guiding principles of Cloudy Bay, committed to producing wines that enhance the pure flavors and stunning vibrancy naturally afforded by the climate and soils of Marlborough Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc succeeded in drawing New Zealand on the wine map and establishing the Marlborough wine region globally. This iconic wine is fresh, vibrant and aromatic. Immediately expressive in the glass, with notes of bright, ripe citrus, kaffir lime, passion fruit and white peach. The palate is vibrant and mouthwatering, with concentrated, juicy tropical notes melding with zesty citrus, stone fruits and subtle notes of orchard blossom. The palate is underpinned by a lively grapefruit acidity, carrying the intense fruit characters through to an impressively long finish.

    Absolutely world class. The gold standard for NZ Sauvignon Blancs. Tropical fruits on the nose with a lovely acidity to balance. The 2020 vintage lives up to the high standard. One of my all time favorites and a great value at this price.

  • EnochDec 24 2020

    Cloudy Bay is one of my all-time favorite Sauvignon Blancs. The 2020 vintage is spectacular and represents all their hard work during an extremely challenging year. Bright acidity with notes of peach, citrus, and zest give this wine a remarkable balance. Pair it will seafood or anything that you'd add a squeeze of lemon or lime and it'll be perfect!

Drizly's take

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc wine has a sophisticated crisp taste. Born in 1985 from an idea of David Hohnen, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wineries in New Zealand. This white wine features notes of makrut lime, stone fruits, and lemongrass. Try it with goat cheese, oysters, seafood, vinaigrettes or vegetables. Remember to serve it at 45 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
