Marlborough Premium
Sauvignon Blanc

Flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf with a rich salty minerality

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Pale straw with green hues.

Aroma:

Passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf with a floral lift.

Palate:

A rich palate with passionfruit and blackcurrant flavours and a salty minerality. This wine has a silky luscious texture and a long lingering finish.

Ageing potential:

Perfect for drinking immediately, this wine will be at its best over the next two years.

Winemaking:

Grapes were transported to the winery quickly and pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact. After cold settling the juice from each batch was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeast strains. Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected for this premium blend.

Viticulture:

Fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards located in the Dillons Point and lower Wairau sub-regions. These are what Saint Clair regards as Marlborough’s best sub-regions, producing wines with heightened expression. Each vineyard block was harvested at optimum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.
