Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2006
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.
Editorial Reviews for Cloudy Bay Te Koko
This is downright flinty and smoky on the nose with bright green herbal accents, white fruits, and background hints of dried chili and flowers. A bit soft upfront, though broad and nicely weighty in the mouth. This is full of bitter citrus tones in a concentrated, fairly focused style but its richness obscures some of the fine detail and robs it of some cut on the palate. 89pts
