Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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.

refreshing lime and citrus notes, excellent acidic balance, light citrus fruit on palate with a subtle minerality

Very green, but not too much green. Nice gooseberry tones. - Tasted at Wine Spectator New World Wine Experience 2010

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!!!

NZ Sauvignon Blanc with plenty of french oak. Malolactic fermentation. Stays on the lees. Very complex - unlike any Sauvignon Blanc I've ever had. The amount of aromas I get from this wine makes my brain hurt.

"The 2005 Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc has an attractive nose with touches of orange blossom
