Wild and wicked

Clark Estate Clericus Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, NZD $35

Oak-aged sauvignon blanc that’s been fermented with indigenous yeasts. Quite a precise and textural wine with a hint of toast, ginger and oak adding complexity to quite ripe stone fruit and grapefruit flavours. A crisp dry wine supported by gentle acidity. (Screwcap)
