Details
The 2023 vintage of this always-reliable sauvignon blanc is a wine with massive drive and concentration. It's characterised by notes of vibrant citrus, fresh lemongrass and sweet honeydew melon, balanced by a stony salinity and mouthwatering blackcurrant freshness.
It's everything you'd expect a sauvignon blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region to be, and is ready to chill and enjoy now – or it will happily spend another 10 years in the cellar for a richer, more complex end result.

TASTING NOTES:
Concentrated and elegant

Aroma

On the nose, there are enticing aromas of ripe honeydew melon, passion fruit, citrus and a touch of fresh blackcurrant leaf.

Taste

The wine is concentrated and elegant on the palate, with hints of fresh sea air balancing out the warmth of the ripe fruit flavours. Subtle tropical fruit characters are underpinned by refreshing notes of makrut lime, lemongrass, lemon and a touch of grapefruit skin.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2023

Made with grapes harvested largely from vineyards planted on the Wairau Valley floor, where the climate and free-draining gravelly soils provide ideal growing conditions for sauvignon blanc.
 

The 2023 season was unsettled, with vineyard teams working tirelessly to ensure the fruit was well-tended and could ripen perfectly and to its full potential.
 

Fermentation was carried out mostly in stainless steel, with almost 5% of the blend fermented at a warmer temperature in oak – a portion was also fermented using wild yeast to build texture and complexity.
 

As is typical with Cloudy Bay wines, this vintage was blended stringently to include only the best – 82 different portions were tasted, of which 50 were selected to create the final blend.
