Cloudy Bay Marlboro Sauvignon Blanc 2011 wine review by Billy
Palate: Crisp mouth feel with nice lemon-lime citrus flavors. Great feel in the mouth.
Finish: The wine finishes with lasting citrussy floral notes. Leaves feeling fresh and clean.
Overall: I paid about $20 for this bottle at a local store. It delivers outstanding Sauvignon Blanc quality at this price. I love the roundness of the nose and how it is crisp without being biting. This white wine from Marlboro in New Zealand has the structure to stand up to cream and butter-based dishes and cut through and cleanse fatty foods from the palate. The Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is from 2011. While it is young, it is exquisite. Please buy two bottles and treat yourself to one before and one during dinner.
