Blend and Origin
Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2014
A 100% sauvignon blanc grown on four old-vine parcels. True to Marlborough, these terroirs are predominantly comprised of free draining gravels. Fermentation in French oak barrels (8% new), partial malolactic fermentation and 18-month barrel maturation on lees adds complexity and texture.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Asian spices and seafood complement this wine’s vibrancy
The fresh fruitiness and bright acidity of Te Koko 2013 make it a perfect pairing for seafood. Try pan-seared scallops, salmon tartare or sesame-crusted tuna with a ginger-miso dressing.
Crab with a hint of ginger will pair excellently, as will Thai green curry, with Te Koko softening the spiciness of these dishes.
