Winemaker's Notes:

Released as a matured wine, the 2002 Cloudy Bay Te Koko is a richly textured, alternative style of Sauvignon Blanc. Luscious aromas of lychee and almond intermingle with green gooseberry and a trace of wood smoke ... the weighty palate offers a delicious medley of tangy citrus, crème caramel and nougat flavours, and a long, lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Cloudy Bay:

Cloudy Bay Vineyards, established in 1985, is today a partnership between champagne house Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin and co-founder of Cape Mentelle Vineyards in Western Australia, David Hohnen. The Cloudy Bay team is committed to producing 'wines of region' and strives to enhance the pure, bracing flavors naturally afforded by the climate and soils of Marlborough. The winery and vineyards are situated in the Wairau Valley in Marlborough at the northern end of New Zealand's South Island. This unique and cool wine region enjoys a maritime climate with the longest hours of sunshine of any place in New Zealand. Cloudy Bay has estate vineyards located at prime sites within the Wairau Valley and long-term supply agreements with five Wairau Valley growers. The main varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
