Drink it now or cellar for up to 5-7 years. No need to decant.

Founded by David Hohnen in 1985 in the Marlborough region of New Zealand, the Cloudy Bay winery is located in a landscape of great beauty between the Pacific Ocean and the Richmond Range, at the entrance to the homonymous bay. Its wines, produced with the utmost respect for the environment, are the distinctive expression of a great terroir. The vineyards are located for the most part in Marlborough, which is the most important wine area in New Zealand for Sauvignon Blanc.

Cloudy Bay Te Koko is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc, obtained from a selection of grapes from six individual plots on gravelly and sandy soils, and vinified and aged in French oak barrels.

In the glass, the Sauvignon Blanc Te Koko shows a bright straw yellow color. On the nose, it reveals the decisive aromatic profile typical of Sauvignon Blanc, with perfumes of apple, citrus and tropical fruit, and some honey notes. In the mouth, the wine is dry and fresh with gentle toasted and honeyed notes and good persistence. It is a wine that lends itself to many combinations with food, including vegetarian quiches and first courses based on seafood, such as spaghetti with clams. Serve it well chilled at 10/12 °C.
