2008 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Te Koko
A ‘false start’ to the season with unseasonably warm temperatures was followed by protracted cool spring weather. This gave some variable shoot growth around the valley. Flowering was largely successful with warm weather during the critical set time. From late December onward the season was reasonably warm and very dry. Harvest was rarely interrupted by rain and the fruit was harvested at a steady pace as it reached ideal maturity.
