Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2017
100% Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in the lower Wairau Valley of Marborough.
Only the very best parcels are selected and used for the Wairau Reserve range. After harvest the juice was pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling the juice was fermented in stainless steel using a selected yeast strain. The fermentation was carried out at cool temperatures to retain varietal characters and freshness.
Intensely fragrant tropical blackcurrant bud and passionfruit aromas combine with notes of green nettle. The palate is rich and salty flavours of passionfruit, red currant, papaya and melon with a long lingering finish.

"If someone held a gun to your head and demanded you name one of New Zealand’s most highly awarded sauvignon blanc’s or it’s curtains - then best you whip out Wairau Reserve. The current release is a cracker. Lemongrass, passionfruit, zesty citrus, sugarsnap pea, white pepper and capsicum characters lead to a luscious, lime-induced glass of gorgeousness."
