FWDC 93/100

Description

A very faithful rendition of this superb Single Block Sauvignon Blanc from the masters Saint Clair. The Pioneer Block 3 is named 43 degrees after the orientation of the rows from north east to southwest instead of typical north-south, designed to give the grapes a slightly 'greener' tinge to give that classic fresh flavour Kiwis love. The vineyard is situated in the lower Wairau Valley to the East of Blenheim.

Smells

Freshly cut grass, crushed basil, sandalwood and passionfruit pulp.

Tastes

Crisp and tropically fruited on the palate, the wine is mouth coating and full-bodied with a wonderful freshness and vibrancy, the finish impressively long and concentrated. Enjoy with seafood between now and 2018.
