Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Vibrant and expressive, with bold Key lime, passion fruit and tangerine flavors that are succulent and show off details of litsea, lemon verbena and makrut lime leaf, accented by a vibrant thread of acidity. Drink now. 65,000 cases imported.
This vintage of Marlborough's most famous label is a balanced, refreshing drop. Bright aromas of grapefruit, peaches n' cream, lemongrass and tomato leaf lead to a palate that crunches with acidity while also being slippery and juicy-fruited. A summer sipper with or without food.
Hints of cut grass and green onion accent ripe tropical fruit on the nose of Cloudy Bay's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Intense guava and passion fruit flavors suffuse the medium-bodied palate, underscored by attractive notes of white grapefruit, but this vintage of a New Zealand classic comes across as slightly lacking in texture and length.
