Wine Critic Reviews:

...the team at Cloudy Bay has turned out one of their best recent efforts. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc boasts notes of gooseberries and pineapple up front, and shows lovely harmony and roundness on the palate. It's medium-bodied and easy to drink, with hints of nectarine and pink grapefruit joining in on the creamy-textured palate and long, silky finish.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region New Zealand: Shaped by the country's maritime climate, narrow oval contour and the mountainous spine that runs through its core, the wine produced here is interestingly diverse and delicious. New Zealand is positioned at mercy of the Tasmanian sea to the west where vineyards are rarely positioned due to the winds that hit these coasts. Thankfully, the main winemaking regions are protected by the mountains and happily produce a number of both white and red grapes. Out of the ten regions spread across New Zealand, Marlborough is the eminent one, known widely for its lavish, focused, herbal whites made from Sauvignon Blanc. The South, characterized by cooler, harsher climate provides a lovely environment where Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer thrive, offering complex and highly aromatic bottles each year. To the North, Bordeaux blends and Syrah have made themselves at home in the warmer parts of the Island, while Central Otago remarkably produces excellent vintages out of dark, luscious and brooding Pinot Noir, known worldwide for its depth and density.
Type of Wine New Zealand White: Great wines don't only come from Europe. New Zealand has some splendid white wines to offer to the world, based on different grape varietals. Sauvignon Blanc is undoubtedly one of the most commonly planted variety, but you can also stumble upon some sweet Pinot Gris, acidic Chardonnay, and even German Riesling, with its wide range of fruity flavors.

Varietal Sauvignon Blanc: This green-skinned wonder-varietal is one of the most represented white wine grapes in Bordeaux, and that fact alone gives it all the credibility you could ask for. Sauvignon Blanc is used for dessert wines and makes an excellent standalone varietal bottle. It's known as one of only a few wines in the whole world that can perfectly complement a plate of sushi. Outside of France, you can expect to encounter this varietal in Chile, Romania, Australia, Washington, California, and many other locations.
