Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Product code: XCB12SBB6D

Our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of elderflower, green lime zest, and stone fruit. The palate is ripe, fine and succulent, offering zesty ripe citrus flavours coupled with an edge of minerality and sweet herbs. A small barrel ferment component gives balancing flesh to the wine’s crisp refreshing acidity. A classic wine from an outstanding season.

Cloudy Bay

Production note

Fruit was harvested over a range of 21.9 to 23.8 Bx during the cool of the night and early morning. Free-run and lightly pressed juice was cold settled for 48-96 hours, before racking over a range of low to high turbidities. Fermentation was primarily carried out in stainless steel, however consistent with the last two years and some of the early Cloudy Bay vintages, a small percentage was fermented at warmer temperatures in old French oak barriques. Despite lower than target yields, the wine was stringently blended, including only the strongest 54 batches from a total of 69 distinct parcels
