A Classy Vintage
The newly released 2017 vintage from Cloudy Bay reminds us once again why it is the name synonymous with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh and racy on the palate, it is perfumed with white stone fruit and backed by a lovely lingering minerality. In short, this is an elegant wine that takes you from a leisurely lounge in the sun to the dinner table.
According to Tim Heath, senior winemaker of Cloudy Bay, “The production of the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is lower to meet our quality and stylistic standards. We have focused on quality over quantity.” Indeed, the quality shows in every sip.
From $50 off-premise, available at leading wine retailers
