Sauvignon Blanc “Upper Awatere”, Marlborough, Clark Estate

“Tangy, punchy sauvignon blanc with typical Awatere gooseberry, green capsicum, tomato leaf and subtle tropical fruit flavours. Intense wine with nice acid tension and a lingering finish. A very classy sauvignon.” Bob Campbell MW 95 points / 5 Stars

“It’s brilliantly expressed, showing green kiwifruit, kaffir lime, rockmelon and lemon zest aromas on the nose, leading to a wonderfully concentrated palate displaying excellent focus and persistency. It’s deliciously styled and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2024.” Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) 94 points / 5 Stars

“Expressive, varietal fruity and quietly savoury scented bouquet. Aromas and flavours of lemon and sweet hay, passion fruit and crush rock minerality then a saline salivating effect. Other flavours of apple and grapefruit then a soft leesy texture add depth and complexity. Balanced and well made with a lengthy and generous finish. Best drinking from today and through 2023.” Cameron Douglas MS 93 points / Excellent

“Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and youthful, soft aromas of blackcurrants leading the bouquet, melded with blackcurrant leaves, lime, along with seaweed and stony minerals. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, fresh aromas of lime, blackcurrants have a taut core, subtle blackcurrant leaves and white pepper growing more prominent lingers with crisp, stony minerals to a refreshing finish. The acidity is electric and seamless, flows along a round-edged palate with subtle phenolic textured-line with ease. This is a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of blackcurrants and lime, savoury and mineral details with brilliant acidity. Match with mussels and shellfish over the next 2-3 years.” Candice Chow (Raymond Chan Wine Reviews) 93 points / 5 Stars

“Offering good value, the punchy 2020 vintage is a single-vineyard wine with a highly aromatic, freshly herbaceous bouquet. Full of youthful vigour, it has very good intensity of melon, passionfruit, lime and green capsicum flavours, with an appetisingly crisp, lengthy finish.” Michael Cooper (Winestate) 92 points / 4.5 Stars
