Generosity is the defining word for the 2009 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. Its aromatics encapsulate a broad spectrum of varietal flavours; tropical fragrances of guava and mango to
ripe lime/ citrus and sweet herbs. The palate also is juicy and voluminous, combining concentrated flavours with a mineral acidity that leaves a long, fresh, intense finish.
"Cloudy Bay continues to define the Marlborough sauvignon blanc with this latest release, a wine that is substantial, citrusy and refreshingly clean. The fruit flavors are tart and complex, with scents of grapefruit pith, orange zest, mango and a sweet green fruit character (rather than the vegetal greenness that sauvignon can give). The flavors last, with enough richness to match dungeness crab."
