Te Koko 2016 taste description

The 2016 Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc is concentrated and complex. The nose is a pleasure of white peach, preserved citrus and tropical vibrance. Its expressive and vibrant palate welcomes the tongue with ripe stone fruits and citrus intensity. Given time in the glass, the wine opens out to reveal guava and rambutan. Long, lingering notes of orchard fruit and a pleasing burst of freshness make the next sip a certainty.

Te Koko 2016 Winemaking

How it's made

Te Koko ferments in French oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, gaining complexity over four to five months under the watchful eye of our winemaking team. The wine then rests in barrel on fine lees for 15 months before blending and maturation in Cloudy Bay’s cellars.

Vineyards and terroir

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

Vineyards and terroir
“The key really is to experiment, and not to be afraid – there is no real “wrong” when it comes to wine – as long as you enjoy it, you’re doing it right.”
