The Wine Advocate, R. Parker: "The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough is intensely scented of gooseberries, elderflower and fresh lemon with hints of white asparagus and sage. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with vibrant vegetal and citrus notes held up by a lively acid backbone and good long finish".

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The company is located in Marlborough and houses in the north is the South Island in New Zealand. The vineyards lie in the heart of this famous region, where the grapes ripen lulled by the sun of New Zealand. The birth of Cloudy Bay vineyard dates back to 1985. The vineyards are located in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough region, in the far north of New Zealand. A unique and valuable region for the production of exceptional wines, which enjoys the beneficial influence of the marine climate of the Pacific and the most amount of sunlight per day than any other place in New Zealand. The long sunny days, when the maximum temperature rarely exceeds 30ºC and clear nights and fresh are the ideal conditions that allow optimum ripeness of the grapes and an excellent aromatic structure of wines.

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.

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon 2017
Notes of white fruits such as apples. I was surprised that this Cloudy Bay had a slightly bitter end, I liked it.
I found this 2017 fine and plesant.

I bought it in Uvinum and It arrived immediately.
Nice colour. Notes of white fruits such as apples. It's funny the little bitter taste left by the end of this white.
