Key lime, melon and mandarin orange flavors feature savory notes of saline and toasted herb that linger on the finish. Sleek and refreshing. Drink now. 45,000 cases imported.

In another tricky vintage, the team at Cloudy Bay has turned out one of their best recent efforts. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc boasts notes of gooseberries and pineapple up front, and shows lovely harmony and roundness on the palate. It's medium-bodied and easy to drink, with hints of nectarine and pink grapefruit joining in on the creamy-textured palate and long, silky finish.
