Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012

This is very intense, complex, nervy young sauvignon blanc, but for all its exuberance it retains a nice sense of control... David Lawrason - LCBO, SAQ, BCLDB

Immensely fragrant with asparagus jumping out of the glass. Green bell pepper, mint, citrus, floral and exotic fruit also present. One of the most intense aromatic wines I've ever tasted. Bone dry with bright acid and a long fresh bitter green apple finish. Personally not a huge fan of his wine, probably because I found the asparagus hint to be off putting.
