Origin New Zealand, Marlborough
Brand Cloudy Bay
Alcohol/vol 13.07%
The 2023 Sauvignon Blanc has an enticing nose, with appealing aromas of ripe honeydew melon, passionfruit, vibrant citrus and a subtle touch of fresh blackcurrant leaf. The palate is concentrated and elegant, with hints of fresh sea air balancing out the warmth of the ripe fruit notes at the wine's core. Subtle tropical fruit characters are underpinned by freshening notes of makrut lime, lemongrass, Meyer lemon and a touch of grapefruit skin. Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is a natural match for almost any seafood. Some of our favourites at the winery include tempura oysters, locally-caught sashimi, and steamed mussels with garlic, citrus and parsley. It's also a great match for green salads and goats' cheese. A hint from us: if it goes with lemon, it goes with Sauvignon Blanc.

It must be difficult being Cloudy Bay, because fame brings extra scrutiny and the questions, "Does this brand offer value for money in the context of the wider region?" In 2023, the Sauvignon Blanc silences its critics. Its vineyard may be much larger than it once was, but it delivers - dry, clean and elegant, with classic characteristics and the bonus of welcome structure on the finish. It may not be the most flamboyant on the nose, focusing more on the herbal rather than tropical spectrum (whether that's elderflower, gooseberry or classic passion fruit), but that seems to be a function of the vintage. The 2023 is long, fragrant and exactly what you want from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, but with an extra layer of class.
