Cloudy Bay, the Sauvignon Blanc that sweeps away clouds, boredom and sadness, with a joyful taste and irresistible aromas for which it rightly earned the 92 points of James Suckling.
100% Sauvignon Blanc from the lush valleys and hills of the Marlborough wine region. The bunches of Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay are carefully selected and picked from vineyards located in the Wairau Valley, in the localities of Rapaura, Fairhall, Renwick and Brancott.
In this area Sauvignon Blanc grows breathing in the sea breeze, in a sunny climate, renowned for its diurnal temperature variation, rooted in that gravelly soil (AKA gravel), typical of this territory of New Zealand.
Genuine and generous grapes that are processed from the experience of one of the most popular wine estates in Marlborough: Cloudy Bay.
This winery was founded in 1985 by oenologist David Hohnen and borrows its name from that cove discovered by explorer James Cook in 1770, called Cloudy Bay due to the rainy weather that welcomed the ships at that time.
Today, with over 300 hectares of vineyards, Cloudy Bay is one of the most representative companies of the high quality and territorial level of New Zealand wines.
Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay: what a taste!
Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay is ready to super refresh you! This happens thanks to a long cold maceration of the grapes and a careful aging on the lees, in steel and, just for 3%, also in French oak.
Even just smelling it, you’ll feel like you’re on vacation.
Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay has an innate freshness. A crunchy wine, thanks to its vivid fruity and tropical notes that remind you of lime, mango, gooseberry and pineapple. Even more lively, thanks to the sensations of freshly cut grass. What perfumes! Even the taste is an outburst of exoticism!
A juicy, velvety and persistent sip, you will never stop tasting it. This is why this Cloudy Bay label has become an icon of the ravishing appeal of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
