Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Marlborough, New Zealand   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Widely regarded as the quintessential expression of the acclaimed Marlborough wine region, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is an international benchmark wine noted for its vibrant aromatics, layers of pure fruit flavours, fine structure and exceptional length.

The 2014 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc has characteristically uplifting aromas of ripe lime and grapefruit, nectarine, papaya and mango and floral notes of orange blossom, gooseberry and sweet fennel are striking. A small portion of barrel ferment and subtle use of solids in fermentation has resulted in a chalky and weighty texture balanced by a minerally-citrus acid backbone. The wine has elegant line and length; refined, fleshy yet focussed and refreshing. A Sauvignon Blanc of this highest quality - as we have come to expect from Cloudy Bay.

"Our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a definitive expression of the region and its season. Appealing concentration and poise suggests a wine with the ability to age. The nose is bright with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit. A generous palate reveals ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass flavours balanced by crunchy acidity. Perhaps the hallmark of this vintage is its persistent finish rich with minerality." - Cloudy Bay

Reviews of the 2013 vintage Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc included below;

"The country’s most iconic sauvignon continues to get better every year, in fact this is one of the best ever. Putting this on the table is the vinous equivalent of pulling up in a Ferrari. Top 100 Wines. "- Bob Campbell MW, www.taste.co.nz.

"It really doesn’t matter what we or anyone else says of this or any other release of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc; it will sell out regardless, and fast. This 2013 version will be released in October 2013. I’d reckon though this this 2013 is a good example of the label. It’s fresh, aromatic and intense without going either overboard (or underboard for that matter) about it all. Grass, citrus, passionfruit pulp, gunsmoke. It feels cool and inviting. It takes nips out of you, but not big bites. It has a sense of balance. If you want to go the Cloudy Bay SB, this would be a good one to jump at. Rated: 92 Points. Alcohol: 13.5% Price: $35.99 " - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

Our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a definitive expression of the region and its season. Appealing concentration and poise suggests a wine with the ability to age.

Our sauvignon blanc free-run juice was cold settled for 48 - 96 hours before racking. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel with a mixture of cultured and wild yeasts. A selection of batches saw warmer than typical fermentation temperatures and high solid content which contributed to palate weight and texture. Our 2014 sauvignon blanc was stringently blended including only the strongest batches. Our final blend shows an alcohol of 13.5% with 2.0 g/L RS, 3.13 pH and TA 7.3g/L.
