Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Te Koko 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"This has developed wonderfully in the bottle with sliced-peach, lemon and mineral aromas that follow through to a medium-bodied palate, subtle fruit, attractive palate tension and a fresh finish. Screw cap." --James Suckling

Cloudy Bay Vineyards:
Cloudy Bay has been the benchmark New Zealand wine, from the iconic New Zealand winemaker Kevin Judd, since its founding in 1985 as one of the first 5 wineries in Marlborough. The ultra-premium wines express the purity and intensity of fruit flavors naturally afforded by the top vineyard sites and maritime climate.

External Reviews for Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Te Koko

External Review
Vintage: 2013 10/11/2016

The very existence of Te Koko is the result of winemaking curiosity. The idea of using indigenous yeast was unheard of in New Zealand when the Cloudy Bay winemakers made their first trial in 1991. The Grapes come from the same meticulously managed vineyards as Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, and the parcels of fruit destined for Te Koko are identified at the time of harvesting. Te Koko is released as a three year old wine, only after all the individual components are fully integrated. Wine Spectator scored it 91 points saying "Intense and distinctive, this opens with vivid floral details, featuring honeysuckle and peach aromas to the apricot and fleshy melon core. Very juicy lime acidity accents the spicy, honey-scented finish. Drink now."

The Wine Advocate score this 2012 93 points saying "The 2012 Te Koko is redolent of honeyed peaches, pink grapefruit and passion fruit with an undercurrent of cedar and baking bread. Medium-bodied with a lovely silken texture and tons of tropical and toast flavor layers, it finishes long."
