CLOUDY BAY Sauvignon Blanc 2016

(Marlborough, New Zealand) $32

Cloudy Bay—the original stunner from New Zealand—hasn’t lost her charm. When the wine debuted in 1985, it took London and New York by storm. (It was as if a new planet had been discovered in the solar system of taste). Today Cloudy Bay remains deliciously complex—a concatenation of flavors (minerals, lime zest, white pepper, papaya) and a kind of botanical hit at the end (like great gin). But it’s the choreography of the wine, the way it splashes onto on the palate, that makes Cloudy Bay especially compelling. (13.3 abv)
