2022 Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc Bubbles
Saint Clair is named after James Sinclair, who was responsible for the first settlements in Blenheim, New Zealand, home of the winery in the South Island. Founded in 1978, the family business is one of the pioneers of viticulture in Marlborough. That is why the link with pioneer James Sinclair was quickly made. Saint Clair owns over 270 hectares of vineyards in Marlborough in the South Island and in Hawke's Bay in the North Island.
After harvesting, the grapes are pressed, avoiding contact with the skins as much as possible. The juice is cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its freshness. Carbon dioxide is then added to the Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc Bubbles.
In the glass, the Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc Bubbles has a typical lemon yellow color. In the nose we smell notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, nectarine and citrus. In the mouth, the wine has a lively bubble with recognizable notes of tropical fruit and subtle chalky / mineral notes. Perfect as an aperitif and delicious with sushi and spicy Asian dishes.
