Winemaker Notes: Aromatic on the nose, with notes of white peach, preserved citrus and a hint of tropicality. The palate is expressive and vibrant, with a balance between ripe stone fruits and citrus intensity. With time in the glass, the wine opens out to reveal appealing guava and rambutan characters, alongside some more honeyed characters. Concentrated and complex, the wine finishes long, with lingering notes of orchard fruit and a pleasing burst of freshness.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "Barrel-fermented character and complex aromas of beeswax, limes and preserved lemons lead to a palate that has assertive acidity cut and a juicy, vibrant and lively, fresh finish."


Vinous - "In recent years, Cloudy Bay has curbed its enthusiasm when it comes to making Te Koko, and that's a good thing. New oak has fallen to around 10%, as has the ratio that undergoes malolactic conversion (between 1996 and 2009, this cuvée was 100% mlf). Round and supple, this offers tangy notes of fresh black currant, white flowers, nettles and subtle passion fruit. Balanced yet linear acidity provides length and purpose on the fragrant, drawn-out finish. A couple of years in bottle has allowed the components to harmonize; this is drinking beautifully now but will hold. Drinking window: 2020 - 2025"


Wine Spectator - "Distinctive and complex. Honeysuckle, beeswax and candied ginger notes add complexity to the pear, yuzu and tangerine flavors at the core. Spicy and crisp on the finish. Shows impressive harmony and intensity."
