Cloudy Bay Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc, 2016, 750ML

SKU: 600022
Sub region: Marlborough
Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Rating: James Suckling 94

A blend of six Sauvignon Blanc vineyards located within the Rapaura, Brancott and Renwick sub-regions.

Free-draining gravel based soils with shallow sandy-loam horizons.

Sauvignon Blanc hand picked, and after gentle pressing and settling for a period of 24 hours, the juice was racked directly to French oak barrels (8% new) where it underwent a slow and steady fermentation that was initiated by indigenous yeasts. The primary fermentation carefully progressed, gaining complexity over four to five months under the watchful eye of our winemaking team. The wine rested in barrel on fine lees for 15 months, than are blended and bottled.
