Aroma

On the nose, Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2020 is complex and appealing, with notes of white flowers, warm hay, summer stone fruits and preserved citrus.

Layers of white peach, pear and white flowers meld with mineral characters and subtle brioche notes. There's a refreshing acidity underpinning the palate, leading to a long and elegant finish.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2020

Te Koko comes from Cloudy Bay's 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 growing sauvignon blanc.

Te Koko was fermented in French oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, gaining complexity over four to five months under the watchful eye of the winemaking team.

The wine then rested in barrel on fine lees for 11 months before blending and maturation in Cloudy Bay’s cellars.
