External Reviews for Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc
Bright and appealing for the passion fruit, guava, lime and mineral flavors that keep dancing in time and remain lively and juicy through the long, focused finish. Drink now.
The 2007 Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc has a light grassy nose that lacks a little clarity, the palate light with sharp acidity, green apple and gooseberry on the finish - your standard Sauvignon Blanc, really.
This refreshing white is generous with its melon, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors, finishing with lime and herb notes that don't quit.
Saint Clair's entry-level Sauvignon is a flashy, fruit-driven wine with a touch of green that's keeping reams of peach and grapefruit reined in. Not quite as rich as the regular bottling, but the Vicar's Choice is a couple of bucks less expensive and still offers a characterful Sauvignon Blanc with a long, vibrant finish.
