Cloudy Bay set the benchmark for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 35 years ago and it is still doing so now. In the world of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc it is too easy to be caught into the flotsam of the sea of mediocrity. This is and always has been immune to the demands of 'cheapest is best'. The focus is on being the best. An excellent release.


Widely regarded as the quintessential expression of the acclaimed Marlborough wine region, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is an international benchmark wine noted for its vibrant aromatics, layers of pure fruit flavours and fine structure.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"For its 35th vintage, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc reaffirms its outstanding quality. Cloudy Bay has built a reputation for refined, elegant Sauvignon Blanc and the 2019 vintage is no exception.

Fermentation was carried out primarily in stainless steel tanks, with approximately 7% of the blend fermented at warmer temperatures in old French oak barriques and large format vats. As usual, our Sauvignon Blanc was blended stringently to include only the best portions."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"New Zealand's most internationally acclaimed wine is sought after from Sydney to New York and London. Its irresistibly aromatic and zesty style and intense flavours stem from 'the fruit characters that are in the grapes when they arrive at the winery'. It is sourced from company-owned and several long-term contract growers' vineyards in the Rapaura, Fairhall, Renwick and Brancott districts of the Wairau Valley, Marlborough. The juice is mostly cool-fermented with cultured and indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks and aged on its yeast lees, and a small percentage of the blend (5 per cent in 2019) is fermented at warmer temperatures in old French barriques and large-format vats. Bright, light lemon/green, the 2019 vintage is ripely scented, weighty and intensely varietal, with rich, ripe tropical-fruit flavours to the fore, a herbaceous undercurrent, a very subtle seasoning of oak adding complexity, and a crisp, dry (2.2 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2020+."


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Powerful, pungent and forward. No mistaking the richness of fruit in the bouquet and varietal signatures of tropical fruits and red apples, sweet citrus, steely freshness and wet stone minerality. Delicious on the palate – fresh, juicy fruit flavours, contrasting acidity, some sweet green herbs and little grassy kick. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2022."


16.5/20 JancisRobinson.com (2019 Vintage)
"Pretty powerful nose with a little more nuance than some vintages I can remember. It has the sort of texture that makes me wonder whether some portions didn't see a little oak. I could drink this! Quite long."


Reviews for the 2018 vintage below…


93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2018 Vintage)
"Quite a weighty, textural sauvignon blanc with pleasing richness adding appeal to citrus, grapefruit, capsicum, and nutty lees flavours. A moderately complex wine in a savoury rather than fruity style. Drink 2018 – 2023."

  • review rating 5  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • review rating 5  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
