Saint Clair Pioneer Block 2 Swamp Block Sauvignon Blanc 2014
100% Sauvignon Blanc from a single vineyard called the Swamp Block, on the fertile, free-draining soils of the lower Wairau Valley in Marlborough.
The juice was pressed off immediately to minimize skin contact and deterioration following harvesting. After settling, it was fermented using a carefully selected yeast in a stainless steel tank at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its intensity of flavour and rich texture.
Heady aromas of passion fruit and blackcurrant leaf with a hint of struck match flint. The palate is flavourful and rich with sweet navel orange, white currant and passion fruit.

Michael Cooper tasting comments:
"The 2014 vintage, grown in the lower Wairau Valley at Dillons Point, close to the coast, is classy stuff. Mouthfilling, it is dry with pure, searching flavours of ripe melons and limes, and a slightly salty note adding complexity. It shows lovely poise, vibrancy and length."
