You might be wondering where Cloudy Bay is. It is a large bay in the northeastern corner of New Zealand's South Island. It was given the name "Cloudy Bay" by Captain Cook back in 1770. Leaping forward a few centuries to 1985, Cloudy Bay became the name of one of the first wineries to be established in this part of New Zealand.

With so much focus on European wines, it is not often that wines from other continents are mentioned, but Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is an award-winning wine that has helped to bring New Zealand's wine into the spotlight and to establish the Marlborough wine region. The 2018 vintage of this exquisite white wine is, according to the technical director, one of the best in recent history. Since this is only the 34th vintage of this wine to be produced, that is saying a lot!

This prestigious and complex Sauvignon Blanc is perfect to enjoy now but can also be aged for up to 10 years. The use of both old French barriques and stainless steel for ageing adds to the shades of flavour that this gorgeous wine carries within its depths. Perfect to enjoy with any lighter dishes such as fish, pasta, appetizers, or simply, good company, enjoy this extraordinary vintage from a fantastic new wine region.

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018

4 /5

Jag köpte ett par flaskor av Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018 på nätet.
Jag tyckte att Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc hade en mycket klar färg. Mycket aromatisk, till stor del av banan och litchi. Jag vet inte, den smakade utgången.

Jeg kjøpte det med vilje fordi den ble anbefalt til meg.
Dens intense farge tiltrakk meg. Den ga meg levende minner om påskelilje. Smaken på Cloudy Bay var av tre.

Nice Daffodil aromas. A little bit salty but it was very good.
It is worth re-buying this Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Marlborough White.
