Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2005
Released as a matured wine, Te Koko is a full-bodied, alternative style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Barrel aging, wild yeast and malolactic fermentation, combines with bottle aging creates a an individual expression of the sauvignon blanc grape. Te Koko is a complex and savoury wine that is both deliciously aromatic and richly textured.
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.
A beautiful wine, with classic grapefruit characters complemented by some complex toasty notes. The '05 has great acidity. A NZ Sauv Blanc that's built for the long haul??? Absolutely!!!
