2015 Saint Clair Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

There's a certain style of savvy we have come to expect from Marlborough, and this offering from Saint Clair ticks all the boxes for lovers of the style. There are plenty of passionfruit, citrus and other tropical fruits on the nose, whilst the palate is crisp and crunchy with a talcy texture, bright lemony acidity, and a dry, refreshing finish. Its great value, so you can keep a bottle permanently chilling in your fridge.

Winemaker's Notes

Flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf with a salty minerality.

Colour: Pale straw with green hues

Aroma: Passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf with a hint of salty sea air

Palate: A rich palate with passionfruit, pink grapefruit, blackcurrant and a salty minerality. This wine is rich in flavour with a long lingering finish

2015 Saint Clair Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Bob Campbell MW (2016 Vintage) says
Perhaps not as concentrated as the Pioneer Block wines, but with an appealing silky texture and an attractive mix of herbal and tropical fruit flavours. Seductively easy-drinking Sauvignon Blanc.

Wine Companion (2012 Vintage) says
Pale straw, vibrant hue; this elegant, yet punchy bouquet offers citrus, chalk and a hint of fresh asparagus; the palate is where the story is really at, as the concentration, energetic acidity and fruit all work seamlessly together for a long and layered finish.
James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the bouquet is slightly dull and muted, though without fault. The palate, likewise, has varietal fruit flavour but lacks the sparkle and zip of the best wines.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; the bouquet is firm, clean and crisp with tangy capsicum and herbal notes. The palate is very lively, with a tangy lift to the fruit, and braced by some mineral/chalky notes which run through to the finish.
