The Oddbins Take

We believe it was Descartes who said, "forget everything you think you know. Whatever lessons you learnt in school, whatever your parents taught you, none of that matters! You're not kids anymore. You're not students. You're X-Men!" Wait, was Descartes an X-Man? No, you're right it was Voltaire that was part of the Marvel franchise.


Whoever said it, they were probably talking about Cloudy Bay Te Koko. For to approach Te Koko, you must first forget everything you think you know about Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Unlike most New Zealand Sauvignons, Te Koko is fermented with wild yeasts, the lees is then manipulated while the wine ages in French oak delivering a complexity and rich mouthfeel that most would not associate with this variety. The palate is focused on flavours of grapefruit, white nectarine, lemon curd and beeswax, with undertones of subtle oaked characters. Boy, Descartes really knows his wine!
