WTN: 2003 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

2003 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough - Pale gold in color with almost a greenish tint. Intense nose, with some peach, lemon-lime citrus, and fresh cut grass. Flavors show some similarities to the nose with the citrus, peach, and grass, but also some earthy herbs and an almost cinnamon-like spice. Rich and expansive in the mouth, more full-bodied than other SB's I have tried. A long finish that is very fresh and lively. An absolutely delicious white wine.

I too was delighted, and even surprised that this tasted so good. Having tried c30 SB from New Zealand over the last few months, it ranks with the best, while remaining overpriced.

Te Koko 2001 was tasting downright weird. Smelt of Moules Marinières. But faultless, certainly.

The star of the range was this time the Chardonnay 2002 - one to keep for a couple of years still.

Pinot Noir 2002 good but not outstanding. Perhaps to keep, too.
