    Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    The grapes for this 100% sauvignon blanc were grown in the Wairau Valley, with the Richmond Ranges to the west and Wither Hills to the east. 2016 was marked by a cool start, but warm months leading to the harvest followed. The majority of the wine was fermented in stainless steel, with 3% moved to old French oak barriques and large-format vats for texture and complexity.


Food pairing:
Seafood pairings work best

Starter

Allow the vibrancy of this wine to come to the fore by pairing with delicately flavoured dishes. Raw oysters make a perfect starter, as would asparagus with a drizzle of balsamic.

Main

Try steamed mussels with parsley and garlic, or with lemongrass and Thai basil. Alternatively, salmon maki provides texture and complements the sauvignon blanc’s intense aromas.
