Story: A name that has become synonymous with New Zealand wine, Cloudy Bay takes its title from the bay at the eastern extremity of the Wairau Valley. The estate was established in 1985 by David Hohnen, who had tasted some fine examples of the vibrant Sauvignon Blanc and was inspired to try his hand in the region. The Wairau Valley is particularly suited to winegrowing, as it enjoys a maritime climate and the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. They have extended their range beyond the classic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noirs to include superb expressions of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris, among others.
Producer: Cloudy Bay
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes: A vibrant and intense Sauvignon Blanc that shows characteristic aromas of lime, grapefruit, nectarine and mango, with floral notes, orange blossom and sweet fennel bringing complexity. A small portion of the wine has been barrel fermented, and this delivers a chalky and weighty texture to the palate, which is balanced nicely by a minerally-citrus acid backbone.
Food pairing: Oysters, White fish, Goat cheese, Sashimi & Sushi, Prosciutto & melon
