Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 2013     
Sku: 2593

The Marlborough region is blessed with a unique terroir... a cool, South Pacific climate that produces wines of great fruit intensity. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is a benchmark wine that epitomizes the vibrant aromatics and pure fruit flavours naturally afforded by the climate and soils of this remote southern wine region.

Tasting notes
Pale straw green in colour and mouth-wateringly fragrant, the 2003 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is redolent of a mid-summer kitchen ... ripe passionfruit, yellow plums, juicy limes and freshly picked basil. The palate is pure and refreshing with all the hallmarks of a small but perfectly formed crop ... flavours that echo the aromas, with piercing concentration, impeccably balanced acidity ...and a long, crisp finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Oct 2013)
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc presents pleasantly intense notes of gooseberries, fresh grass and green apples with hints of capsicum and dill seed. Medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing on the palate thanks to plenty of vibrant citrus and vegetal flavors, it finishes long with some silkiness to the mouthfeel. Drink it now to 2016.

Technical notes
Grapes were sourced from eight estate and grower vineyards located in the Rapaura, Fairhall, Renwick and Brancott sub-regions of the Wairau Valley. Free draining, stony soils typify the Rapaura and Renwick areas whilst Fairhall and Brancott are predominantly fine alluvial loams containing some clay. The majority of fruit was grown on the divided Scott Henry trellis system with the exception of a small percentage of young vines.
