Saint Clair Pioneer Block 3 43 Degrees Sauvignon Blanc 2015
- Out of stock
Saint Clair Pioneer Block wines are made from small parcels of outstanding fruit from specialist vineyard sites prized for their individual terroir characteristics. The 43 Degree vineyard is planted with vineyard rows running in an unusual angle of 43 degrees North East to South West. This results in more shade to the southerly aspect of each row thereby producing a slightly more herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc than other sites in Marlborough. The area is slightly cooler than most of the Marlborough Valley with a slower, longer ripening period.
Aromas of crushed herb, blackcurrant bud, passionfruit and gooseberry. This Sauvignon Blanc is distinctively Marlborough with a fresh vibrant palate of passionfruit, gooseberry and crushed herb. Wonderfully full and rich with striking minerality leading to a long, lasting finish. A stunning marriage with vegetarian cuisine, particularly any dish with fresh asparagus. Also well matched with fresh seafood or poultry.
