Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Marlborough, New Zealand   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Widely regarded as the benchmark example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, the release of Cloudy Bay is one of the most highly anticipated each year.

The newly released 2014 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit, this delivers a generous palate offering up ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass flavours balanced by crunchy acidity. A Sauvignon Blanc of this highest quality, fans of Cloudy Bay will find plenty to like about the release.

"I’ve tasted this - the new version of the Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc - three times in the last week. I think it’s one of the best ever. I know that it’s a brand that has enjoyed celebrity status in the UK, so much so that it has even had to be allocated and/or bundled by retailers, because everyone wants some. And it hasn’t always lived up to the reputation. But the 2014 vintage is a classic example of top-quality Marlborough Sauvignon, with exotic notes yet also lots of finesse. You pay for the quality, of course, but it’s just such a lovely wine with a great back story.... Really aromatic with lovely green pepper and grapefruit as well as some exotic passionfruit notes. Quite delicate and expressive with lovely balance. Real finesse on the palate with the riper, more tropical notes balanced by fine, mineral, chalky and subtly green notes. I’d buy and drink this as young as possible for the lovely delicate aromatics, or I’d cellar it to get something rather different - a 1996 tasted recently was lovely. 92/100"- Jamie Goode,

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.

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.
