Very, very good. Pale almost translucent in color. Aromas of grapefruit, fresh cut grass, and a zing of lemon zest. Palate of citrus, with a grapefruity finish, and also herbal and mineral notes.

Generous, with outstanding depth to a fleshy wave of pink grapefruit, grass and mineral flavors. Lime-grapefruit acidity hones the lingering finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. -DS Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2006 Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc Vicars Choice 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker: Matt Thomson Colour: Pale straw Aroma: A lifted nose showing aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit and underlying herbal and passionfruit notes. Palate: A light-bodied, dry, crisp wine with classic Marlborough flavours of gooseberry, guava, nettles with a hint of honeysuckle and the fresh acidity of grapefruit. A slight mineral note leads to a long lingering finish. Ageing Potential: Perfect for drinking immediately, this Sauvignon Blanc will be at its best over the next 18 months. Winemaking: The fruit for this wine was sourced from several vineyards within different sub-regions throughout the Marlborough region including the classic Rapaura area and newer regions like Blind River in the Awatere Valley. The fruit was carefully monitored throughout maturity and harvest took place in the cool of the evening once the fruit had reached optimum flavour development and ripeness. Transported to the winery and pressed off with minimal skin contact, the resulting juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness. Wine Analysis: Alcohol 13%, Titratable Acid 7.35g/litre, Residual Sugar 4.0g/litre, pH 3.43 Awards: Double Gold Medal - Best Sauvignon Blanc, San Francisco International Wine Competiton 2006 Gold Medal - Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2006 Silver Medals - NZ International Wine Show 2006 - New World Wine Awards 2006 Bronze - Royal Easter Show Wine Awards 2007 4 Stars and Best Buy - Cuisine Magazine, January 2007 31/2 Stars - Winestate Marlborough Tasting 2007 View Awards Food Suggestions: Enjoy with grilled seasonal vegetables, salads or fresh fish.
