Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016


''Very pale straw colour with green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very fine and intensely concentrated with penetrating aromas of pungent passionfruit entwined with fresh herbs, subtle notes of tropical fruits, laced with a line of gooseberries, blackcurrant leaf and mouthwatering chalky minerals. This has remarkable vitality and vibrancy. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is vibrantly poised, thirst-quenching and energised by acid cut, drive and tension. The fruit flavours are tightly bound and intensely concentrated with passionfruit, fresh dark herbs, blackcurrant leaves and chalky minerals. The fruit extraction is refined, lending very fine phenolic textures and are driven along a firm, taut and sustained finish. This is a refined, taut and tightly concentrated, vibrantly thirst-quenching Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of passionfruit, herbs, blackcurrant leaves and chalky minerals, phenolic finesse and great linearity.
