It may seem a little expensive for this wine, but it has to be appreciated that it is quality, far superior to "plonk" at £5/bottle, at a supermarket. For the discerning imbiber, Cloudy Bay's Sauvignon Blanc is in a class of its own. It is smooth, delicate, but flavoursome. I have tried many other Sauvignon Blanc wines, but none match this for it's unique flavour. It used to be "rationed" in this country (ie, the vineyard limited the amount it would supply), and it was usually only available at certain times of the year. If you cannot tell the difference between this and "plonk", it is a great pity.
