Full and rich with firm, well-balanced acidity, this wine has powerful passion fruit, gooseberry and grapefruit notes. A mineral component adds complexity and depth to a long lingering finish.
Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Intense passion fruit and gooseberry flavours, richly textured with a long lingering finish.
The fruit 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 steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as the Wairau Reserve wine due to its power and intensity of flavour.
