Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2020 – Minerally in a Slightly-Lighter Style Than is Typical

Cloudy Bay, Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough, New Zealand, Wine Casual

Cloudy Bay, Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough, New Zealand

Tasting Note: A minerally, New Zealand sauvignon blanc with the grape’s characteristic flavors but done in a slightly-lighter style than is typical.

Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of grapefruit, pear, grass, pineapple, white peach stonefruit, tangerine and blossom.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sauvignon blanc has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a floral-and-citrusy, medium finish.

The wine is slightly-steely in texture.

A good New Zealand sauvignon blanc.
