Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2008


    You must be logged in to add tags.

    Scented and summery, the 2008 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc has deliciously vibrant aromatics that infuse the tropical fragrance of fresh passionfruit and juicy pineapples with garden-fresh basil and the spiciness of crushed tomato leaves. The palate is long and succulent, combining exotic fruits with ripe, red capsicum and a twist of green olive... beautifully complemented by crisp natural acidity and a hint of lime zest

    This definitely has the classic New Zealand 'love it or hate it' gooseberry note. Fortunately I do - this has a pungent and fruity aroma with that gooseberry but also hints of tropical and more exotic fruits. Long, mouthwatering finish. Very good with food such as this Chicken with Green Olives recipe - this dish needs a wine with good acidity to counterbalance the salty, briny olives:
