Clark Estate ‘Clericus’ Marlborough Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter edged. The nose is elegant and refined with good depth and intensity of green stonefruits along with greengages and nectarines entwined with subtle notes of nettles and fresh herbs, and a soft, integrated layer of smoky oak. This has finesse and delicacy of detail. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied the palate is crisp and sharp with brisk, cutting acidity and a light core showing green stonefruits with greengages, nectarines and nettles. The fruit is melded and balanced by subtle nutty oak adding a complexing layer of interest. The wine has good intensity and flows with good energy and vitality along a very fine-textured, dry line to a taut, lingering finish. This is a taut, dry-textured and refined oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruits and racy acidity. Match with herb-marinated seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3 years. Fruit chosen from individual rows, fermented in tank with 25% in barrel to 13.5% alc. and 1.3 g/L RS, the wine aged 7 months on gross lees. 18.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $35.00
