GOLD MEDAL | New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition 2018
95 POINTS | Bob Campbell MW
SUPERSTAR SAUV BLANC
Arguably New Zealand’s most awarded Sauvignon Blanc and a wine which has developed a truly iconic status in many of Saint Clair’s world markets. This is a tour de force expression of fine Marlborough Sauvignon with layer after layer of tropical fruits interlaced with finely handled acidity and loads of out and out pizzaz!
The winery writes "Generous and intense with concentrated flavours of white peach, passionfruit and fresh grapefruit. A slight herbal edge and salty minerality leads to a long lingering finish."
Bob Campbell MW writes "Intense and quite complex sauvignon blanc with passionfruit, red capsicum, struck flint, guava and ginger. Quite a weighty wine, with impressive power and an impeccable balance between sweetness and acidity that leaves a pleasantly dry finish."
