Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012 & Chardonnay 2010

28-Sep-2012
Cloudy Bay is the standard bearer for Marlborough and New Zealand when it comes to Sauvignon Blanc. Being part of the LVMH stable confers upon the label and brand luxury good status, which has real and positive benefits for all. As with most luxury items, there is a finite, and indeed limited amount available. The fruit for the Cloudy Bay Marlborough wines comes from the ‘Cloudy Bay Estate' vineyard in Rapaura, the ‘Widow's Block' in Renwick, the ‘Mustang' vineyard in Brancott Valley and the ‘Barracks Block' in the Omaka Valley. These sources are supplemented by fruit from a small number of long-time contract growers. The winemakers are Nick Blampied-Lane, Tim Heath and Sarah Burton, with Jim White as viticulturist. They are responsible for Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, the main white wines made. Here are my reviews of the new releases of these wines. www.cloudybay.co.nz
