    December 23, 2022 - I first went to Cloudy Bay in 2002 … and was “there for 2 days” cooking.. racking, eating , drinking. I love this place but the past 10 years have been hit and Miss at times. This is the best I’ve had in 10 years. Almost a Perfect SB creation! Balanced but intense… singing of grapefruit.. gooseberry.. lemongrass.. kiwi .. lime and some grass and minerality. I almost couldn’t believe it being so perfect in complexity, uplifting acidity .. pure fruit and roundness. It’s a Picton dream. I’ve got 1/2 a bottle left … I’m going to watch Jimmy Stewart in .. It’s a wonderful Life

    October 29, 2022 - The nose is classic grass with a hint of cat’s pee and this flows through onto the palate. A very typical and a very good NZ SB.
