"In a year when Cloudy bay is celebrating its 30th anniversary, the 2015 vintage sauvignon blanc is true to the pedigree and aoverall provenance of Cloudy Bay wines" as said Tim Heath, Senior Winemaker. This dry white wine is very bright, focused citrus aromatics of grapefruit and kaffir lime abound, all supported by subtle tropical notes. On the palate, Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Cloudy Bay has a silky feeling, concentrated palate reveals ripe, juicy stone fruit and lemongrass, supported by a subtle minerality. Its racy acidity leads toward a mouthwatering, persistent finish, suggesting a sauvignon blanc with ageability.
Parker : 88 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough has a nose of fresh lemon, white grapefruit and lime blossoms with hints of sage and wild thyme. Medium bodied, dry, crisp with plenty of citrusy zing in the mouth, the finish is long and steely.
