With 25 years as head-honcho at the iconic Cloudy Bay behind him, Kevin Judd's vast experience with Sauvignon Blanc becomes quite obvious when you try this wine. Beautifully ripe fruit, great concentration and of course fine balance leaves you with no doubt that this is super-premium Sauvignon Blanc.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​A vibrant mix of nectarines, yellow peaches and cassis combines with the bright fragrance of lemon zest laced with musky, jasmine-like floral nuances. The palate is packed with ripe stone fruit, melons and mandarin creating a succulent tropical-fruited style with that classic Marlborough zing."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The very classy 2016 vintage, grown at sites in the central Wairau Valley and the Southern Valleys, was fermented entirely in tanks (with some indigenous yeast fermentation at relatively warm temperatures). Weighty, punchy and dry, it is overflowing with vibrant, ripe melon/lime flavours, with good acid spine and a long, tight finish. Explosively flavoured, it offers great value."
93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, January 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"From the central Wairau and Southern Valleys, this is precise and firmly structured sauvignon offering lifted aromas of grapefruit, flint, fresh apple and lemongrass on the nose, leading to a concentrated and focused palate that is linear and persistent. The wine is powerfully expressed and impressively long on the finish with mouth-watering acidity. At its best: now to 2020."
91/100 Decanter (2016 Vintage)
"​One of the most sought after Marlborough Sauvignons, demand must follow owner Kevin Judd around – he was chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years before deciding to go things alone. Intriguing fenugreek seed and bacon fat aromas evolve into elderflower and citrus. On the palate, intense gooseberry and fenugreek dominate, with elderflower and honeysuckle providing some richness, followed up by slight mineral notes. Although vibrant, the acidity is kep in check, making this a well balanced wine."
