Clark Estate Clericus Wild Sauvignon Blanc MMXXII 2022, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Apr-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow with a tinge of gold. The bouquet is rich and powerful, with aromas of struck match overlying stonefruit, passionfruit and a herbaceous thread. Medium-full bodied, aromas of lime, passionfruit and nectarine have a taut core, unfolding citrus peels, toast and stone flint. The wine is powerful and has barrel fermentation characteristics. Taut acidity provides freshness and balance and persists to a rich, toasty finish. Match with roasted grouper with white sauce and smoked fish over the next 6+ years. Fermented with indigenous yeasts to 11.8% alc, 0.46 g/l RS, oak aged. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Apr 2024 RRP $35
