ICONIC 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 "Opulent and complex with concentrated layers of bright citrus and tropical fruit. The palate is crisp and full, with a salty mineral texture and a lingering finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Fantastic bouquet with a vibrant, varietal, fruity and with fresh herbs and spices delivers a powerful and enticing promise. On the palate - equally vibrant and delicious with flavours of sweet meyer lemon and white peach, fresh herbs and fruit spices. Acidity adds a quiver of energy leading to a salty enticing mouthfeel. Excellent drinking from 2021 through end of summer 2024."
