Saint Clair Vicar’s Choice Bright Light Sauvingon Blanc 2019

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

Pale green straw.

Bursting with fresh aromas of lemonade, crushed herb and gooseberry combined with a subtle wet stone minerality.

A refreshing and mouth-watering palate delivering flavours of lemon, lime and gooseberry with an underlying salty note. This wine is ‘lighter’ in alcohol, with no compromise on tropical flavour intensity or complexity.

Ageing Potential:
Perfect for drinking immediately or over the next three years.

Winemaking and Viticulture:
The fruit was sourced from selected vineyard sites located in Marlborough’s Waihopai and Awatere Valleys. Grapes were harvested at optimum flavour intensity before the sugar levels became too high. This allowed the production of wine lower 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 to retain some residual sugar in order to give the wine palate weight.
