Saint Clair Pioneer Block 1 Foundation Sauvignon Blanc 2019 (Marlborough)
SAINT CLAIR WINEMAKERS Stewart Maclennan and Hamish Clark weren’t messing around when it came to this stunning sauvignon blanc harvested from the fertile, free-draining soils in the lower Wairau Valley in Marlborough. This singlevineyard wine is the total package – it has lift and power on the nose, aromas of blackcurrant leaf and thyme with tropical opulence and incredible citrus oozing forth. In addition, and some might consider even more importantly, it has palate weight and length to go with it. Remarkable mineral crunch and juiciness with everlasting length and vibrancy. A sauvignon to rule them all by unanimous agreement.
