Expert Reviews

Delicately aromatic Sauvignon Blanc showing impressive subtlety and plenty of power with its long and linear finish. Quite a narrow band of flavours focusing on the citrus, lime zest end of the flavour spectrum without being overtly grassy. Very textural wine with hints of nutty lees character. Impressive. Rating 95 - Bob Campbell,

Tinned grapefruit segments in light syrup, lime, quince, gentle spice, grass and fennel perfume. Juicy grapefruit flavour with a little varietal grassiness, lightly flinty, crisp acid, tight and chalky finish of good length. All just so. Very good release. Warm summer’s day. Seafood. Game on. Rating 92 - Drink by 2018, Gary Walsh, (OCT/2016).

The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough has a nose of fresh lemon, white grapefruit and lime blossoms with hints of sage and wild thyme. Medium bodied, dry, crisp with plenty of citrusy zing in the mouth, the finish is long and steely. Rating 88 - Drink by 2017, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (DEC/2016).

Winery Tasting Notes


A vibrant mix of kaffir lime, lemon zest and nectarine aromatics intermingle with the bright perfume of orange blossom.


Brimming with ripe citrus and stonefrit flavours that are framed by sleek and succulent acid architecture

Food Matching

Sauvignon blanc partners well with spicy Asian cuisine (not too much garlic or ginger) and particularly with lemongrass. Fresh seafood including oysters, mussels, whitebait and calamari make excellent matches. It is a natural born partner for the freshness of most Mediterranean cuisine - tomatoes, basil and feta cheese - as well as green salads and asparagus.

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.
