Saint Clair Pioneer Block 2 Swamp Block Sauvignon Blanc 2023, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Nov-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green hue. The nose is gently lifted with aromas of nettle, elderflower, white spice underlying cassis, citrus and tropical fruit mix. Medium-light bodied, lime, grapefruit, white cassis and pineapple aromas intermixed with elderflower, fennel seed and nettle. The flavours are harmonious and complex, flow along a silk thread with delicate yet vibrant acidity, and persist to a long, elegant finish. This Sauvignon Blanc is elegantly refreshing with refined texture, delicate nuances, and persistence. Match with whitebait and fresh-shucked diamond clams over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Dillons Point in Lower Wairau Valley, fermented in stainless steel to 13% alc. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $33
