Cloudy Bay Releases it’s 2018 Sauvignon Blanc

Cloudy Bay Main

Established in 1985 by David Hohnen, a pioneer and visionary, who was convinced of New Zealand wines’ great potential. The Cloudy Bay was among the first five to be established in Marlborough, the country’s finest wine region, and is now highly regarded for the superlative quality and consistency of its wines. Thirty years later, Cloudy Bay remains New Zealand’s most recognized winery. Sauvignon Blanc is the Estate’s flagship grape variety apart from their Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and sparkling wine, Pelorus.

This year, Cloudy Bay releases its 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, a vibrant and mouthwatering wine with notes of citrus, kaffir lime, passionfruit and white stone fruit. The Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are located in the heart of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, centered around the Cloudy Bay winery itself.

Cloudy Bay 2018

In 2018, Cloudy Bay became foundation members of Appellation Marlborough Wine, an organisation designed to protect the integrity, authenticity and brand value of wines produced in Marlborough. Sauvignon made under the AMW banner must be 100% from Marlborough, be made from lower-yielding vines, and be made and bottled in New Zealand.

Jim White, Technical Director of Cloudy Bay said: “In 2018, we have made a wine that tells the story of our vineyards, our culture and that quality of our fruit. There are challenges in any year, but we have learned over many years that focus in the vineyard is the key to a delicious wine.”

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is available at leading fine wine retailers and stockists at varying prices.
