Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc put New Zealand on the map with its captivating flavor. Their signature style is famous for its vibrant nose, mouthwatering palate and long finish. Stone fruit and citrus stand out, while minerality (think rain on river stones) provides balance.

Erin Larkin writes: Rocking the new label and proprietary glass, the 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is excellent. It’s soft and floral, with lashings of green apple, sweet pea, pink grapefruit, white currant, coriander and even kiwi fruit. Sensational wine. Cloudy Bay has a big reputation for a reason. They age, too, so keep that in mind. 13.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Robert Parker Wine Advocate 94
James Suckling writes: Lime peel, sliced green pears, hints of asparagus and lemons. It's bright and crisp with a medium body. Refreshing, showing restraint and focus. Drink now. Screw cap. - James Suckling 91

Jancis Robinson writes: The vineyards are very close to the winery so there is no appreciable skin contact. Just two small vineyards of the more than 100 ingredients are more distant. 5% lees stirred. 5% oak component. Free-run juice and six or seven different yeasts are used, as well as flotation experimentally, which is thought to build quality.
Real grip. Dry and savoury. Quite sophisticated. - Jancis Robinson 17

MaryAnn Worobiec writes: Stands out for its intensity, with ruby grapefruit, yuzu and lemon essential oil details, plus notes of fresh-clipped, aromatic herbs centered around lemon thyme on a sleek, juicy frame. Long, expressive finish. Drink now. Wine Spectator 92

Natasha Hughes MW writes: A pungent, punchy nose with plenty of Sauvignon Blanc character. Peach, blackcurrant leaf and kaffir lime leaves are blended with grapefruit zest and tarragon. Linear and bright with a ramrod-straight acidity and a long finish. - Decanter 93
