Antonio Galloni

"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." -Vinous

"Cloudy Bay's 2016 Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc is marked by scents of pencil shavings and citrus fruit on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate features a silky texture allied to bright acidity that calls to mind certain well-made Pessac-Léognan whites. Rather taut and linear, it could use another year or two to settle down, although it will likely never be as opulent or generous as the wonderful 2015." -Robert Parker

"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."

"This vintage of Cloudy Bay's barrel fermented and aged Sauvignon is a ripe and somewhat odd one. It opens with rich, heady aromas of candied pineapple, honey, lychee and buttered cooked beans. Acidity on the palate finds a lovely interplay with the chalky texture, and the fruit retains its vibrancy, but there's a sulfuric burn on the finish, rounding out a wine that will be divisive to say the least." -Christina Pickard
