Winemaker's Notes:

Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2005 offers a tantalizing medley of aromas … ripe citrus, green mango and passion fruit imbued with lemon thyme, fresh ginger and exotic spices. The finely structured palate balances a nougat-rich generosity with citrus fresh succulence and a delicious mineral edge … leading to a long, lingering finish.

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.
