Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2023
Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is an iconic New Zealand wine with depth, complexity and a dry style. Fermentation is carried out mostly in stainless steel tanks which delivers freshness and directly fruit flavours, which are balanced by a small portion of the wine, typically 4% of the blend, being fermented at warmer temperatures in old French oak barriques. A little goes a long way and this oak fermentation provides a smoothness, softness and flavoursome interest to this deliciously complex Sauvignon Blanc. Its flavour notes span the spectrum of appealing tropical fruit and herbs to dry spicy aromas and a lingering freshness on the long finish.
These complex winemaking factors combine to create a wine that is a noticeable step up from many other Sauvignon Blancs on the market.
