The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc has a zesty and vibrant nose, with notes of juicy citrus and makrut lime underpinned by subtle white nectarine and passionfruit notes. The palate is mouthwatering, with ripe vibrant passionfruit and citrus at the fore. These meld with tropical hints of peach and guava, gently balanced by stony saline notes.
Hints of cut grass and snow pea pods accent aromas of white grapefruit and passion fruit on the nose of Cloudy Bay's 2020 Sauvignon Blanc. The medium-bodied palate is round and generous at first, hinting at fig and nectarine, but it narrows to citrus and chalk on the silky-textured, mouthwatering finish. It's a solid, very drinkable effort, but such a historically important producer should be capable of more.
The 2023 vintage of this Sauvignon Blanc is a wine of great strength and concentration. It is characterized by notes of citrus, fresh lemongrass and sweet honeydew melon, balanced by stony salinity and blackcurrant freshness. It's everything you'd expect from a sauvignon blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region, and it's ready to chill and enjoy now.

Established in 1985, Cloudy Bay was one of the first five wine makers to venture into Marlborough. At the time, it was almost an unimaginable place to set-up a vineyard. But Cloudy Bay’s founder - David Hohnen - was convinced of its potential to produce great wine and invested in the best land of the region. Since then, Marlborough has risen to become New Zealand’s leading wine region, as well as one of the finest winemaking locations in the world.

Marlborough is a wine region located in the northeast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is known for producing some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc wines. The region has a cool climate with a long growing season, which allows the grapes to ripen slowly and develop complex flavors.

The history of winemaking in Marlborough dates back to the 1970s when the first commercial vineyards were planted. Since then, the region has grown rapidly, and today it is home to over 150 wineries.

The style of production in Marlborough is focused on Sauvignon Blanc, which accounts for over 80% of the region's wine production. The wines are known for their intense aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, and grassy notes. The region also produces some excellent Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling wines.

Marlborough's winemakers are committed to sustainable and organic farming practices, which help to preserve the region's unique terroir. The soils in Marlborough are predominantly alluvial, with a mix of gravel, sand, and clay. This soil type, combined with the cool climate, produces wines with a distinctive minerality and acidity.

Overall, Marlborough is a must-visit destination for wine lovers who appreciate the crisp, refreshing style of Sauvignon Blanc. The region's commitment to sustainable farming practices and its unique terroir make it a top producer of high-quality wines that are enjoyed around the world.
