Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay 2016


Current stock: 5

Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc Cloudy Bay, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2016 

100% Sauvignon Blanc with 15 months on the lees in barrel. 

The 2016 season was one of the driest that the Marlborough region has experienced since the wine industry was established in the province. A cool start to the growing season created numerous frost events that provided continuing challenges right up until flowering. 

Aromatic on the nose, with notes of white peach, preserved citrus and a hint of tropicality. The palate is expressive and vibrant, with a balance between ripe stone fruits and citrus intensity.

Enjoy with fresh crab and shellfish dishes.

"With time in the glass, the wine opens out to reveal appealing guava and rambutan characters, alongside some more honeyed characters. Concentrated and complex, the wine finishes long, with lingering notes of orchard fruit and a pleasing burst of freshness. " Jim White Cloudy Bay winemaker

"Cloudy Bay's 2016 Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc is marked by scents of pencil shavings and citrus fruit on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate features a silky texture allied to bright acidity that calls to mind certain well-made Pessac-Léognan whites. Rather taut and linear, it could use another year or two to settle down, although it will likely never be as opulent or generous as the wonderful 2015." 91/100 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, April 2021
