Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough, Awatere Valley|
Part of the ever-expanding portfolio of American-owned Foley Family Wines, this is straightforward, ultracrisp Sauvignon Blanc that leads with ripe topical and stone fruits balanced by notes of fresh green beans and bell peppers. In the mouth, prickly acidity nearly wrestles the fruit out of the picture, and it veers toward astringency on the finish.
Citrus and herb flavors are subtle on a smooth frame, with a juicy finish. A touch of lemon thyme lingers. Drink now. 70,000 cases made, 60,000 cases imported.
