The Cloudy Bay Pinot Journal is online at Youtube. The background music is classic corporate vid (which I could do without) but the content is worth watching. It’s always interesting to know what the viticulturalist thinks of the vintage and 2011 sounds like a good one. View it here.

Anything but Sauvignon. It can be ABC, Anything But Chardonnay <link> (from my other blog before I created this one). I’m definitely not a fan of Sauvignon so I was pleased to read this excellent article from The San Francisco Chronicle <link> about the other wines made in the home of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough. It concludes:

“The wines in this list that are made without Sauvignon Blanc show that Marlborough can produce top-flight wines even without relying on its signature grape.”

I can particularly recommend Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Gewurztraminer. I haven’t tasted this particular vintage.
