Forget all you know about New Zealand's 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 intriguig minerality. The palate is juicy, with mouthwatering notes of nectarine, kaffir lime and lemongrass. A round and creamy mouth-feel complimented by a gentle minerality, while the nervy acidity contributes to a youthful and vibrant finish


Bright, full-yellow colour; the bouquet rich in roast hazelnut aromas, the palate full-bodied and rounded, smoothly textured and soft, with the customary dry finish which rolls on and on. Slightly less delicate than the 2014, but still very good. 31 MAR 2015 2015–2025
