Saint Clair
Vicar's Choice
Sauvignon Blanc Bright Light

A lighter way to enjoy the intensity and flavours of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Pale straw green.

Aroma:

Beautiful lifted aromas of capsicum, fennel bulb and blackcurrant leaf combine with an elegant minerality.

Palate:

A refreshing and mouth watering palate delivering flavours of gooseberry, passionfruit and blackcurrant with an underlying green herbaceous thread. This wine is lighter in alcohol, with no compromise on flavour intensity and complexity.

Ageing potential:

Perfect for drinking immediately.

Winemaking:

The fruit was harvested from selected vineyard sites capable of reaching optimum flavour intensity before the sugar levels became too high. This allowed the production of a wine low in alcohol but rich in flavour. The grapes were machine harvested at cool temperatures and processed immediately to minimise skin contact. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain varietal character and freshness. Fermentation was stopped while some residual sugar remained in order to give the wine palate weight.

Wine Analysis:

Alcohol: 9.50% v/v, Titratable Acidity: 7.10 g/litre, Residual Sugar: 8.10 g/L, pH: 3.45.

Food match:

An ideal lunchtime wine or aperitif. A perfect match for seafood or fresh summer salad.
