Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2009

After the Cloudy Bay Te Koko I tried before, this bottle is also coming from New Zealand.  However, its winemaking Buy Viagra Super Active+ Online Pharmacy No Prescription Needed method is almost completely different from Cloudy Bay Te Koko.  This bottle is Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2009.

Cloudy Bay Te Koko uses natural yeast, undergone three years ageing in new French oak and Buy cipro online also undergone malolactic fermentation.  Saint Clair’s winemaker Matt Thomson instead want to emphasize on fruit flavours and want to limit influence of lees and oak.

From this winemaking philosophy, it is not unexpected to find a wine with strong aromatic flavour and more similar Buy Brand Levitra Online Pharmacy No Prescription Needed to most New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in term of style.  This wine is very aromatic and very pungent both in its nose and in palate.  Flavours are quite typical to many Sauvignon Blanc of gooseberry, passionfruit, grapefruit, herbs and honey.  It definitely has very good intensity and concentration.  However, I find it slightly lacking in complexity and character.  Yet, this is definitely a good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc if this is the style you like.
