Clearview Estate Reserve Te Awanga Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Grown on the Hawke's Bay coast, the 2001 vintage of this Hawke's Bay wine was fully barrel-fermented. Toasty and oaky on the nose, it's a powerful, creamy wine with ripe, non-herbaceous flavours and a tight finish.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is intense, with citrus/lemon/peach aromas and subtle oak. The palate repeats those ripe, almost tropical flavours, and has good intensity, balance and length. Here, too, the oak does not intrude too strongly.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
This label replaces the Hawke's Bay winery's Sauvignon Blanc, typically a robust, rich-flavoured, strongly oaked wine. Winemaker Tim Turvey is now cutting back on the wood: the 1998 vintage was 50 per cent barrel-fermented; the rest was handled in tanks. Rich tropical fruit aromas lead into a very non-herbaceous wine with pure, sweet fruit characters and a subtle oak influence. It's a delicious, concentrated wine and more refined than the enthusiastically wooded wines of the past.
