User Reviews for Saint Clair Wairau Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker's Notes:

From 1994 when wines from the first vintage all won medals including gold, the name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality and its award-winning record continues today. Top International accolades include the trophy to Saint Clair/Matt Thomson for White Winemaker of the Year at the London International Wine Challenge, September 2008 and the coveted trophy for Best New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2005. Saint Clair Family Estate also has the distinction of being the first New Zealand wine company to win major international trophies for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the same year. The fruit for this wine was pressed off as quickly as possible to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling the juice was fermented using selected yeast in 100% stainless steal at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. A hugely powerful wine with intense pungent aromas of black and white currants, passionfruit and grapefruit. The palate is full, rich and firm with well balanced acidity. Intense and powerful passionfruit, blackcurrent and grapefruit flavours are abound. A mineral component adds complexity and depth to a long finish.
