Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2018 750ml
Origin: Wairau, Marlborough, New Zealand
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Color: Pale straw
Aroma: Tropical notes of passionfruit, grapefruit and blackcurrant combine with salty mineral notes.
Palate: The palate is rich and weighty and full of flavours of grapefruit and blackcurrant along with green notes of nettle and capsicum. A subtle sea salt character leads to a long lingering mineral finish.
Winemaking: Fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards located predominantly in the lower Wairau sub-region. This is what Saint Clair regards as Marlborough’s best sub-region for Sauvignon Blanc, producing wines with heightened expression. Each vineyard block was harvested at optimum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. Grapes were transported to the winery quickly and pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact. After cold settling the juice from each batch was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeast strains. Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected for this premium blend.
Food pairing: A perfect accompaniment for any fresh seafood.
