Details

Widely regarded as the benchmark example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is always one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year.

The vineyards are located in the heart of the Wairau Valley, in Marlborough.

Cloudy Bay built a reputation for refined, elegant Sauvignon Blanc, and the 2017 vintage is no exception despite critical harvest conditions, the result is lower quantities to meet the high quality standards.

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.

ā€œCloudy Bay 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent vintage that reveals an elegant and concentrated palate with ripe, juicy stone fruit and lemongrass, supported by a lovely minerality. Its crisp acidity leads to a mouth-watering and persistent finish suggesting a Sauvignon Blanc that will age well.ā€
Tim Heath - Senior Winemaker

The Sauvignon Blanc 2017 harvest commenced on April 1st and was completed on April 20th. Grapes were picked with ripe flavours and great acid balance.

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. Winery Notes
