Expert Reviews

It really doesn’t matter what we or anyone else says of this or any other release of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc; it will sell out regardless, and fast. This 2013 version will be released in October 2013.

I’d reckon though this this 2013 is a good example of the label. It’s fresh, aromatic and intense without going either overboard (or underboard for that matter) about it all. Grass, citrus, passionfruit pulp, gunsmoke. It feels cool and inviting. It takes nips out of you, but not big bites. It has a sense of balance. If you want to go the Cloudy Bay SB, this would be a good one to jump at. Rating 92 - Drink to 2014 Campbell Mattinson, WineFront NZ (SEP/2013)

New Zealand’s most famous sauvignon remains on form and 2013 is one of the greats. A mild harvest allowed for ideal ripening, with generous fruit sweetness finding a natural balance with a very low level of residual sweetness (2g/L). The result is an even and calm style that accents nashi pear, lime zest and subtle gooseberry notes amidst a palate of bright acid definition and enduring persistence. It’s lively, crunchy and unforced. Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly, April 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


Zesty lime and grapefruit aromas are the first to emerge from the nose of our 2013 sauvignon blanc, followed by nectarine and lemongrass tones.


The palate is fresh and focused with ripe citrus, stonefruit, fennel and mineral notes lingering on the persistent finish.

Food Matching

Our sauvignon blanc is a delicious partner to a tomato and goat curd salad drizzled with fresh basil oil.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Cloudy Bay Vineyards was established in 1985 by Cape Mentelle Vineyards in Western Australia, and is today part of Estates & Wines, The Moët Hennessy Wine Division. Innovation, meticulous attention to detail and regional expression are the guiding principles of Cloudy Bay. The Cloudy Bay team is committed to producing ‘wines of region’ and strives to enhance the pure, bracing flavours and stunning vibrancy, naturally afforded by the climate and soils of Marlborough.

The winery and vineyards are situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand's South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has 250 hectares over four estate vineyards, and long-term supply agreements with nine Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir with lesser quantities of gewurztraminer, riesling, and pinot gris.

Cloudy Bay wines are exported to over 30 markets, the principal ones being Australia, United Kingdom, USA, Europe and Japan. Cloudy Bay believes that the future success of specialist wineries lies in the production of high quality wines from varieties best suited to specific regions. At Cloudy Bay, emphasis is placed on individual fruit character and the development of a recognisable estate wine style.

Cloudy Bay Vineyards was a founding member of the New Zealand Integrated Winegrape Production scheme, set up to develop a programme for sustainable vineyard management, which is now monitored by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. Cloudy Bay’s impeccable scorecard reflects the company’s commitment to environmentally friendly winery and vineyard management practices.

The winery takes its name from the bay at the eastern extremity of the Wairau Valley, which was named Cloudy Bay by Captain Cook on his voyage to New Zealand in 1770. At the time of Cook’s discovery, Marlborough was in flood and the Wairau River running into the bay was full of silt creating cloudy waters.
