Pale Clouds Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Unique, exuberant and intense. Sauvignon Blanc is the explosive grape variety that awoke the world to New Zealand wine. In 1973, as Marlborough’s first Sauvignon Blanc vines were being planted, no one could have predicted that this variety would attain superstar status within a couple of decades. The explosive flavours of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc have dazzled wine critics throughout the world, setting the international benchmark for the style. Sauvignon Blanc’s ‘zing’ is a delightful complement to the fresh flavours of seafood, shellfish and white fish. Crunchy summer salads and tangy foods, such as tomatoes and vinegar based dressings, are good matches. Or, on its own it is a mouth watering aperitif. Pale clouds, part light, part shadow, pass delicately over the spectacular Richmond Ranges of the Marlborough region on the South Island of New Zealand. Pungently aromatic this benchmark Sauvignon Blanc assails the senses with gooseberry character through lush passionfruit and tropical fruit overtones.
