The nose is nuanced, with citrus, stone fruits and savoury notes of soft woodsmoke. On the palate mellow oak and mineral characters are balanced by the vibrant acidity and freshness of citrus and conference pear. A long and elegant finish draws together this dense and powerful wine.

Cloudy Bay's Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc is a unique and sophisticated premium style Sauvignon Blanc, achieved through wild fermentation and ageing in old French oak.

The 2019 growing season began with an early budburst after a mild winter and warm early spring. Late spring brought cool, unsettled weather during flowering, which meant lower-than-average yields. The weather continued through December, but Christmas brought the gift of warm, dry conditions until harvest.

Te Koko comes from the older vines planted on the floor of the Wairau Valley. The warm, free-draining gravelly soils of the Motukawa, Widows, Estate and Brook Street vineyards are ideal for Sauvignon Blanc.

Cloudy Bay is one of Marlborough's pioneering estates and New Zealand's finest wineries, a real icon with a worldwide reputation. The winery was named after a body of water that Captain James Cook found on his voyage to New Zealand. His discovery coincided with flooding, which washed sediment into the sea giving it an opaque appearance, hence Cloudy Bay.

5 STARS & SUPER CLASSIC - Michael Cooper Buyer's Guide to NZ Wines

An intriguingly unique and sophisticated premium style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of lemon thyme, mandarin blossom and stonefruit combined with ginger spice, toasted nuts and savoury tones, all underlined by exotic tropical notes most typical of this aromatic varietal. The multi-layered palate is creamy and textured, balanced by a clean, mineral acidity.
