Ever since David Hohnen, the visionary behind the esteemed Cape Mentelle in Western Australia, introduced his showstopping Cloudy Bay Sauvignon in the 1980s, it has left wine lovers spellbound. Impressively fresh and intense, this wine has an understated brilliance that distinguishes it from more exuberant Sauvignons. Nestled in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the estate takes its name from the most easterly point of the valley, named Cloudy Bay by explorer Captain James Cook when he discovered the region in 1770. There’s plenty of competition now for Marlborough’s top spot, but Cloudy Bay continues to be the benchmark of quality for New Zealand wines. Savour with seafood or spicy Thai dishes.
