Cloudy Bay is New Zealand's wine reference and the most internationally acclaimed brand. It is one of the first five wineries from Marlborough, New Zealand's best wine region (at the northernmost tip of the South Island). and takes its name from the 'Cloudy Bay' to the east, which Captain Cook discovered. As a pioneer, Cloudy Bay has definitively put the Marlborough wine region on the map. Marlborough's cool, maritime climate alternates with plenty of sunshine. Long sunny days and cool nights provide beautiful scents and power in the taste.

The Emperor or Empress of Cloudy Bay wines is the Te Koko. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from a very old vineyard. As with very old vineyards, the yield is often very low, but the quality is extremely good. For this reason, very old vineyards are often replaced by young sticks that give a higher production, but fortunately not with these vineyards located in Rapaura, Brancott and Renwick because these produce high-quality grapes that are used for this Te Koko. The grapes for this wine come from four Cloudy Bay vineyards and are picked at night for optimum fruit intensity. In addition, this Te Koko has had a long wood education of 12 months and this gives a full, thick somewhat oily wine, but with beautiful acids, beautiful (citrus) fruit, jasmine flowers and sweet herbs and hints of ginger. In the mouth the wine is full bodied, creamy on the palate and the aftertaste is very subtle but present smoky oak and hint of vanilla.
