Cloudy Bay’s Silver Lining

Japan’s Daily Yomiuri tracks the stellar career of NZ’s best known vineyard – Cloudy Bay – in a feature on summery Sauvignons. “NZ zapped into the spotlight in 1985 with Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was in your face and up your nose with aromas of gooseberries, jalapeno peppers, green peas and asparagus. Was it a salad or a wine? Cloudy Bay’s creative winemaking and skillful marketing thrust the wine into worldwide cult status.” The 2002 model is described as “subtler,” but still an example of “beautifully handled winemaking.” Marlborough’s 2002 West Brook Sauvignon Blanc also gets a favourable mention.
