Saint Clair

Saint Clair Family Estate 2014 Sauvignon Blanc 13%
Lush, juicy, fruity and varietal with high impact fruit centred aromas - apples and sweet grapefruit, a layer of tropical fruit and a softer grassier side.
On the palate - crisp, fruity and vegetal: plenty of acidity to off-set the generous fruit core, apple and grapefruit flavors return, mild almost soft herbaceous layer. dry finish and well made.
Another well made Saint Clair wine.
4 Stars

Saint Clair Family Estate Pioneer Block 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Dillons Point 13%
Exotic, generous and rich in varietal character: a harmonious core of tropical fruits, sweet herbs and sweet citrus fruit suggestions, very giving of minerality as well.
On the palate - just dry with a little RS balanced by gregarious acidity - quite high; a core of fruit that lingers well after the high acidity fades; great balance and length. Well made.
4.5 Stars
