The Cloudy Bay estate lies in Wairau Valley, Marlborough, at the northern tip of New Zealand's South Island. It takes its name from the most easterly point of the valley, named Cloudy Bay by the explorer Captain James Cook when he first discovered the region in 1770.
This wine is impressively fresh and intense, with an understated brilliance that sets it apart from more exuberant Sauvignons. Despite ever increasing competition, Cloudy Bay remains one of Marlborough's defining wines.
