The 2019 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is immediately expressive in the glass, with notes of bright, ripe citrus, kaffir lime, passion fruit and white peach. The palate is vibrant and mouthwatering, with concentrated, juicy tropical notes melding with zesty citrus, stone fruits and subtle notes of orchard blossom. The palate is underpinned by a lively grapefruit acidity, carrying the intense fruit characters through to an impressively long finish.
Pair this with fresh and simply prepared seafood, steamed mussels with parsley and garlic, and Spanish Gazpacho.

Vibrant and expressive, with bold Key lime, passion fruit and tangerine flavors that are succulent and show off details of litsea, lemon verbena and makrut lime leaf, accented by a vibrant thread of acidity.

Plenty of tropical fruit and a grassy edge, too. This has so much fruit character and delivers mangoes and limes in abundance on the palate. Drink now. Screw cap.
