Te Koko 2020 is complex and appealing, with notes of white flowers, warm hay, summer stone fruit and preserved citrus on the nose. Textured. with layers of white peach, pear and white flowers melding with mineral characters and subtle brioche notes. A freshening acidity underpins this dense and enticing palate, leading to a long and elegant finish.

Intense, concentrated and aromatic, this mouthwatering white is fresh and lively, with crisp Key lime pie and graham cracker notes followed by details of lemon blossoms, honeysuckle and lemon verbena. Shows a simultaneously supple and sleek body, with a savory sea salt note and the slightest hint of flint lingering on the finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases made, 700 cases imported.

Initially, the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Te Koko is sweet, fruity and round, o!ering up tinned mandarins and sweet nectarine fruit (5g/L) alongside subtle oak-derived flavors. However, the wine progresses to become taut and sour, a combination of firm acidity, low pH and phenolics, leading to a slightly uncomfortable conclusion. Rather a disappointing Te Koko, after an impressive 2019.
