Description

Winery Info/Brand

The Cloudy Bay estate in Marlborough, New Zealand, founded by David Hohnen in 1985, is situated at the entrance to the eponymous bay, surrounded by breathtaking scenery between the Pacific Ocean and the Richmond Range. Cloudy Bay wines are crafted with meticulous attention to terroir and the natural environment, each reflecting a unique flavor profile.

The Vineyard – Cloudy Bay: Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Cloudy Bay’s Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is among the best wines from New Zealand and is meticulously crafted from vineyards in the Rapaura, Fairhall, Renwick, and Brancott sub-regions of New Zealand‘s Wairau Valley. The soils, drained of stony alluvial loam with some clay, contribute to the distinctive character of the wine. Apart from Sauvignon Blanc, Cloudy Bay is also esteemed for making the best red wine of Pinot Noir Singapore and Chardonnay white wine perfectly.

The Vintage

While the early part of the year witnessed favorable weather conditions allowing for an early budburst, cold nights and frosts marked September and October. Thanks to the estate’s protection equipment, the vineyard remained unaffected. December’s climatic fluctuations led to an uneven flowering period, reducing harvests. Optimal temperatures that followed facilitated uniform ripening, resulting in a rich and exquisite vintage from Cloudy Bay’s 2022 Sauvignon Blanc, a blend of 87 plots. No doubt this wine is considered among the best white wine Singapore. 

Vinification and Ageing

The free-run juice undergoes a meticulous process, including cold decanting, racking, and inoculation with selected yeasts post-harvest. The majority of fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks, with approximately 4% of the blend aged in ancient large French oak barrels and vats.
