    Description

    The Reserve wines are Saint Clairs finest, representing the highest quality across seven wine styles. Grapes for the Reserve labels are specially selected and handcrafted by the winemaking team into wines of exceptional character and uncompromising quality. A full and rich wine with firm, well-balanced acidity this Sauvignon Blanc has powerful passionfruit, blackcurrant and grapefruit notes with a minerality that adds complexity.

    Aroma

    :A hugely powerful wine with intense pungent aromas of black and white currants, passionfruit, grapefruit and boxwood.

    Palate

    :Full and rich with firm, well-balanced acidity, this wine has powerful passion fruit, blackcurrant and grapefruit. A mineral component adds complexity and depth to a long lingering finish.

    Winemaking

    :The fruit was pressed off as quickly as possible to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling the juice was fermented using selected yeast in 100 per cent stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness.

    Viticulture

    :The fruit was sourced from two vineyards, one in Dillons Point and the other on Thomsons Ford Road. During ripening the grapes were carefully monitored and subsequently harvested in the cool of the evening with maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness
