Since its founding in 1994 Clifford Bay has specialized in Sauvignon Blancs that are finely balanced, refreshing and pure, and which reflect the best of Marlborough and its active, coastal lifestyle. Home to diverse landscapes, Marlborough's diverse terrain includes the expansive flat valleys in the Wairau Valley sub-region to the windswept mountains of the Awatere Valley. Giving the Sauvignon Blanc grapes that are sourced from the vineyards a complex diversity that is reflected in each of Marlborough sub-regions.
Named for the sparkling bay where the Awatere River meets the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean, Clifford Bay blends the best of the South Island’s famed Marlborough fruit to produce classic Sauvignon Blancs with signature freshness and distinctive aromatics, full of expressive fruit flavors that are as lively as the Wairau Valley.
