Cloudy Bay was established in 1985 by David Hohnen, a pioneer and visionary, who was convinced of New Zealand wines’ great potential. The winery was among the first five to be established in Marlborough, the country’s finest wine region, and is now highly regarded for the superlative quality and consistency of its wines. Thirty years later, Cloudy Bay remains New Zealand’s most recognised winery and Sauvignon Blanc is the Estate’s flagship grape variety.
Cloudy Bay are foundation members of Appellation Marlborough Wine, an organisation designed to protect the integrity, autheticity and brand value of wines produced in Marlborough. Sauvignon made under the AMW banner must be 100% from Marlborough, be made from lower-yielding vines, and be made and bottled in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay’s 2019 Sauvignon will carry the AMW logo on its label.

Jim White, the Cloudy Bay Technical Director says “This vintage is likely to be remembered as one of the great Marlborough vintages, and we have created a Sauvignon Blanc that perfectly balances ripeness and freshness. The quality is a testament to our great vineyards, our hardworking teams and a season where everything just came together.”
Pale gold, with glints of green, this wine has aromas of ripe citrus, passion fruit, white peach and Thai lime leaf. A vibrant and concentrated taste, with flavours of zesty citrus and tropical fruits, complemented by a subtle hint of orchard blossom and grapefruit.
