Saint Clair 2014 Vintage

Saint Clair
Vicar's Choice
Sauvignon Blanc

Light bodied and fresh with typical Marlborough flavours of passionfruit, blackcurrant and grapefruit.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Pale straw with green hues.

Aroma:

Lifted aromas of passionfruit, white peach and grapefruit combine with refreshing herbal and mineral notes.

Palate:

Light bodied and fresh with typical Marlborough flavours of passionfruit, blackcurrant and grapefruit. A pleasing herbaceous thread leads to a long and lingering finish.

Ageing potential:

Perfect for drinking immediately, this Sauvignon Blanc will be at its best over the next two years.

Winemaking:

Transported to the winery with haste and pressed off with minimal skin contact, the resulting juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and zing.

Viticulture:

The vines were pruned using three or four cane vertical shoot positioning. Each vineyard’s yield is managed appropriately and is dependent upon the ability to ripen clean, quality grapes to their desired flavour spectrum. Fruit was sourced from several vineyards within different sub-regions throughout Marlborough, including the classic Rapaura area, lower Wairau and the Brancott Valley. The fruit was carefully monitored throughout maturity and was harvested upon reaching optimum flavour development and ripeness.

Wine Analysis:

Alcohol: 13.00% v/v, Titratable Acidity: 7.10 g/litre, Residual Sugar: 3.10 g/L, pH: 3.28.

Food match:

Enjoy it on its own as an aperitif. Alternatively match with seafood or chicken served with grilled vegetables or fresh salad.
