WTN: Sing along with Smokey Robinson

"I've got sunshine...on a Cloudy Bay."

2016 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc
Very crisp, with a harmonious choir of just about everything one can find in kiwi Sauvignon Blanc--gooseberry, grass, white grapefruit, lime, lemon grass--with no one note standing out. The only thing lacking was the intensity I associate with the CB and the best NZ wines. It seemed a bit underpowered following a 2013 from Napa Valley.

$27 here. Yes, we've been drinking Sauv Blancs all week and it certainly doesn't stand out at that price.

Smokey deserves something better than Cloudy Bay.

Maybe an article on Pinot Noir clones titled Tears of a Clone.
