Cloudy Bay

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Powerful bouquet of Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of fresh herbs, ripe citrus, fresh white peach, crushed pineapple and a light leesy wet stone combination; crunchy, engaging and fresh. On the palate - equally powerful with the volume turned up high on crisp, ripe, fresh and dry. Flavours of pink grapefruit, lemon zest, crushed pineapple and crushed herbs. The wine is very new on the palate with electric acidity that needs to calm just a little with more time in bottle. Destined to age well - totally enjoyable now, but I expect will develop complexities over the next 2-3 years while remaining fresh and packed with energy.
