Accolades

Saint Clair’s flagship Sauvignon, the 2011 Wairau Reserve features layers of tropical fruit aromas and a slightly sweaty pungency—just enough to lift and accentuate the fruit. Flavors are a lively mix of ripe tropical and stone fruit, with nettles and other green herbaceous notes. The wine is medium to full bodied and richly textured on the palate while remaining zesty and refreshing. Editors’ Choice. 92 Points —J.C.

An aromatic, elegant and supple wine, with wave after wave of intense, pure, and ripe flavours of peach, apricot, lemongrass, jasmine, passionfruit and nectarine. All of this intensity is balanced by a juicy acidity. Drink now. 92 Points
