Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014, Marlborough, New Zealand (~£20 widely available)

    I remember in the ’80s there was some semillon in the mix. Do they still do this ?

    I think they aim to get the texture in there now from different pickings of Sauvignon – don’t think it’s had Sem in since the 1990s, but am happy to be proved wrong!
