Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2015
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Cloudy Bay broke the winemaking rules to create a sophisticated style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc made through wild fermentation and aging in old French oak. Vineyards for making Te Koko 2013 were specifically chosen due to a combination of flavour intensity borne from vine age, balanced acidity and a ripe aromatic profile.
Initial scents of white florals and fresh herbs are supported by those of sweet stone fruits and honeysuckle, and completed by a flinty minerality.
Refreshing, juicy and creamy, with mouth watering notes of nectarine, kaffir lime and lemon grass, complimented by gentle minerality, producing a youthful and vibrant finish.
