92 Points - James Suckling

The iconic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is brimming with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours. 

A vibrant glassful of intense lime and grapefruit characters with a hint of passionfruit. Fresh, balanced, this is classic Cloudy Bay from an excellent vintage.

2020 harvest was completed under the unprecedented conditions of a New Zealand-wide lock-down due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With wineries classified as an essential industry, we were able to bring in this exceptional harvest,

Following the harvest, the free-run juice was cold settled, before racking and inoculation with selected yeast. Fermentation was carried out primarily in stainless steel tanks, with approximately 4% of the blend fermented at warmer temperatures in old French oak barriques and large format oak vats. As usual, our Sauvignon Blanc was blended stringently from 91 different portions to include only the best. The final blend shows an alcohol of 13.2% pH 3.11 TA 7.15g/L RS 2.4g/L
