Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Gorgeous lemon, lime, and pineapple
Firm, with good acidity
Long finish of citrus and mineral layers
Cloudy Bay is the winery that helped put New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc on the map in years past. This 2008 is a good wine, with nice citrus layers and a long finish. It also has mineral notes on the finish that others typically don't have.
While it's at the upper end of the price spectrum for such wines, it's a real treat at $25 or so. Raise a glass!
