Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Te Koko 2008
These days the Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc is usually sourced from 5-6 vineyard parcels of older vines that produce riper (less grassy) fruit.Intense warm grapefruit, green guava and pineapple notes with hints of cedar and orange blossom. Medium bodied, crisp and concentrated, it reveals a good amount of mid-palate fruit with a long finish.Edited from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
