2020 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc

New Zealand | Sauvignon Blanc
"A fresh, creamy-textured white with lots of freshness and lovely pear and green-apple character. Some white pineapple. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity and a flavorful finish. Less herbs and more clean, ripe fruit."

"It would be easy for Cloudy Bay to rest on its laurels, such is its renown, but you can't argue with the quality (even if you might at the price). The sweet, juicy pink grapefruit, guava and passion fruit notes are elegant, not in your face, and balanced well by brisk acidity. Delicious!"

"Delightfully textured and smooth with balanced yet mouthwatering acidity, this wine veers into the green hedgerow spectrum of Sauvignon; think nettles and elderflowers rather than flamboyant tropical fruits. That said, there's a subtle flavor of passion fruit running through this wine. Midweight with some decent concentration, it offers nice grip on the medium-plus-length finish. Don't chill the hell out of this or you'll miss the best bits. I've given a drinking window of 2020–2025 but having tasted a delightful 14-year-old Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc that tastes like a mature Sémillon, I can say that you’re not in any danger if you leave it longer."
