The Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Cloudy Bay offer explosive aromas of lemon zest and grapefruit with hints of nectarine and lemon grass. The palate is fresh with pronounced flavors of ripe citrus and stone fruit, fennel and a persistent minerality on the finish. Perfect with a salad of tomatoes and goat curd (curd goat cheese) seasoned with basil oil. Cloudy Bay is the orgine of the vineyard in the Marlborough region in New Zealand and has become in less than 30 years, one of the most renowned wineries in the world for New Zealand wines.

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

I first tasted it, when I got it as a present.
Pale yellow with coppery nuances. I noticed aromas of acacia flower. Unctuous with aromas of chocolate coulant.

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Quite delicate nose with faint herbs and oily butter touches. Medium bodied, very intense and dry. Ripe quince, sweet grapefruit, lemons, prickly acidity, good balance and length.

This Cloudy Bay goes great with shrimps. I tasted it with wine enthusiasts.
I thought that the Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc had a very light colour. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc recalls white fruit. The Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is a well-bodied wine.
