Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Bubbles 2017

External Review:

WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: This refreshing white is generous with its melon, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors, finishing with lime and herb notes that don't quit. Drink now. A delicious wine with crisp fruit flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry and grapefruit.The fruit for this wine was sourced from several vineyards within different sub regions throughout Marlborough. The most significant portion has come from the prestigious lower Wairau area, renowned for its concentration of aroma and fruit, with the balance coming from the classic Rapaura area. The fruit was carefully monitored throughout maturity and the harvested once it had reached optimum f lavour development and ripeness. 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.

Saint Clair Family Estate is owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, viticulture pioneers in Marlborough since 1978. Grapes were originally supplied to local wine companies; however a desire to extend the quality achieved in the vineyard through to the finished wine led to the establishment of Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994. The Saint Clair name originates from the vineyard property, first settled by the Sinclair family. Pioneer James Sinclair built one of the first homes in Blenheim and was closely associated with the early development of the town. Over time the name of the property reverted to the original Saint Clair. The company's mission is to create world-class wines that exceed their customers every expectation. Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive viticultural expertise plus Marlborough’s mix of climate and soils with the talent of one of New Zealand’s leading winemaking teams, led by Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark. From 1994 when wines from the first vintage all won medals including gold, the name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality and its award-winning record continues today. Top International accolades include the trophy to Matt Thomson of Saint Clair for White Winemaker of the Year at the London International Wine Challenge, September 2008 and the coveted trophy for Best New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2005. Saint Clair Family Estate also has the distinction of being the first New Zealand wine company to win major international trophies for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the same year. Read less
