Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Beautiful pale yellow-green color
Big grapefruit nose
Grassy flavors on the palate
Clean finish with nice acidity

Cloudy Bay quickly became the benchmark New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with excellent offerings year after year. Of course, today there are many terrific labels from New Zealand from $4 to $40. Even so, this one is still special with its characteristic citrus and grassy qualities. It's actually not easy to find and rather expensive at $28. Still, it's a benchmark wine and very enjoyable if the opportunity presents itself. Raise a glass!
