FIVE STARS 93/100 | Steve Bennett MW, NZ Wine Rater
26th - The World's Most Admired Wine Brands 2023 | Drinks International
Cloudy Bay's 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is intense, concentrated and focused with mouthwatering acidity that gives structure and textural intrigue to the palate. It is a hallmark expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Steve Bennett MW, NZ Wine Rater writes "Restrained bouquet with classic nettle and gun flint characters backed up by an array of fruit aromas including grapefruit, kaffir lime, cucumber and yellow capsicum. Lighter-bodied, youthful, subtle wine that is taut, dry and textural with crisp, racy acidity."
The winery writes "The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc has a zesty and vibrant nose, with notes of juicy citrus and makrut lime underpinned by subtle white nectarine and passionfruit notes. The palate is mouthwatering, with ripe vibrant passionfruit and citrus at the fore. These meld with tropical hints of peach and guava, gently balanced by stony saline notes."
