Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Wine Review (NW)




Tasting notes:

Gorgeous lemon, lime, and pineapple

Firm, with good acidity

Long finish of citrus and mineral layers

Summary:

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!
