Saint Clair Sauv Blanc Wairau Reserve 2016

External Review:

Pale bright yellow. Aromas of lemon and grapefruit pith are complicated by a note of cumin. Dusty and tactile on the palate with a glyceral aspect but also a firm edge to the pineapple and grapefruit flavors. At once smooth and pungent and persistent on the finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Architect Neal Charles Jones and Saint Clair's Chief Winemaker, Matt Thomson, combined their extensive experience to design Saint Clair Estate's new state of the art winery. Built for production from the 2006 harvest, the new winery is capable of crushing 300 tonnes of fruit per day. It features state of the art equipment including high-tec refrigeration control and monitoring software to further enhance the quality of Saint Clair award-winning wines. The major investment decision to develop Saint Clair's own winery facility is fueled by continued sales growth to 180,000 cases in 2005 and strong forward growth projections, particularly for the Saint Clair's award-winning Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. The Riverland's Estate location was chosen as an ideal position for the new winery due to its central location, proximity to Saint Clair's main vineyards, and where there are adjoining facilities for bottling, storage, dispatch, power and effluent discharge. The winery boasts a large temperature controlled barrel hall for storage of up to 650 oak barriques. This new production facility aims to be extremely functional and will continue to be developed to meet the specific needs for Saint Clair's quality wine production. Saint Clair's Chief Winemaker, Matt Thomson, believes the new winery will further enhance the existing prestige quality record of the Saint Clair brand. Read less

Pale straw-yellow Hints of cassis and blueberry on the nose. Bright and penetrating, showing impressive concentration to its ripe citrus and saline flavors. This serious, salty sauvignon finishes chewy and long, with a positive dryness and excellent... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Rich, fleshy and concentrated wine with passion fruit, red capsicum, lemon grass and a hint of box hedge. A strong statement thats the essence of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in a slightly more refined style than usual. Bob Campbell, MW.
