Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2015
Sourced from Cloudy Bay’s older vines in Rapaura and Renwick, the sauvignon blanc (100%) grapes in the 2015 vintage were concentrated and aromatic – a result of the driest growing season on record in Marlborough. Fermented with indigenous yeast in French oak (8% new) and matured on lees, the wine developed a complex, unique character.

A balancing act
Grilled asparagus brushed with hazelnut oil will complement the wine’s vibrancy.
Delicate salmon with a horseradish cream will benefit from the structure and complexity of Te Koko. Or emphasise its savoury character with cold soba noodles, served with bonito flakes and a tamari dressing.
