    Winemaker Notes
    Flavors of grapefruit and white nectarine display a fresh counterpart to the richer notes of lemon curd and beeswax. Tightly focused with a taut entry. The finish is an amalgamation of nectarine, glacé fruit and a subtle smoky oak complexity. Floral characters linger in the background.

    94: James Suckling
    This has developed wonderfully in the bottle with sliced-peach, lemon and mineral aromas that follow through to a medium-bodied palate, subtle fruit, attractive palate tension and a fresh finish. Screw cap.

    COMMENTARY: When I first joined the bandwagon in the early 1990s—like everyone else in the wine world—and went gaga over New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, I could just not get enough of these wines. I would drink them all the time and just get lost in their grapefruit peel and pungent flavors. Soon, I grew bored of these characteristics. The wines were very good to excellent, but I wanted more. New Zealand had enticed me with these wines, but it was just a start, I had tasted a few "special" bottlings and could see that another level was just around the horizon. The 2014 impressive Cloudy Bay Te Koko shows just how far the Kiwis have come. I blind tasted a few of my colleagues, and their educated guesses included a Loire Valley Chenin Blanc—can you spell Savennières? Chile came up as well. Though their words were learned and thoughtful, their expressions were the most telling—their faces were all smiles as they tasted this wine. TASTING NOTES: The 2014 Cloudy Bay Te Koko begins with a bright look into the glass. As the wine brings its fragrance into the air, there are notes of tart apples, stone fruits, dried citrus, and fragrant herbs. The wine's palate is exquisitely balanced and perfectly crisp. Pair the wine's refreshing finish with simply prepared seafood and you will understand why this wine is so deliriously good. (Tasted: February 7, 2018, San Francisco, CA)
