2015 marks Cloudy Bay's 30th anniversary as well as one of the driest summers on record for the country. Concentrated tropical fruits — kiwi, gooseberry, papaya, tangerine — rule from first whiff, alongside a tangy, potent base of meadow grass, green pepper and greengage. Lemon peel spikes the acidity up a few notches on this intense Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Not shy, and a great example of this type of Kiwi Sauvignon. Where is that blind tasting exam when you need one?
