Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2015

100% Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in the lower Wairau Valley of Marborough.

Only the very best parcels are used for this Wairau Reserve wine. After harvest, the juice was pressed off immediately. After settling it was fermented in stainless steel using a selected yeast. Fermentation was carried out at cool temperatures to retain varietal characters and freshness.

Winemaker's Comments

Intensely fragrant aromas of passionfruit, blackcurrant bud and gooseberry, with notes of tarragon and flint. The palate is rich and salty with tropical fruits, crushed minerals and wonderful length.

    DWWA judges' comments
    "Curry leaves, a minty note and some camomile and candied lemons fill the bouquet. On the concentrated palate there is an attractive grapefruit rind bitterness that keeps the wine in check on the finish. It has excellent length and impeccable overall balance. A textbook example."
