Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2023, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Jan-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is expressive with aromas of fresh gooseberry, white currant, green mango, nettle and sea minerals. Medium-light bodied, aromas of gooseberry, white currant and green mango form a taut core, unfolding kaffir lime, nettle, elderflower and sea salt. Delicately textured phenolics provide substance and silkiness to the mouthfeel. Zingy acidity persists to a crisp, lingering with saline moreishness. A well-made, sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc shows refined layers and purity. Match with mussels with herb butter and goat's cheese ravioli over the next 3+ years. Fruit from a single vineyard in Dillons Point of the Lower Wairau Valley fermented to 12.5% alc. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Jan 2024 RRP $36
