Saint Clair Vicars Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Wine Spectator: Rated as Outstanding: a wine of superior character and style. "Bright and refreshing, generous with its melon, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors, finishing with lime and herb notes that do not quit. Drink now." May 2010
Winery: "Pale straw colour with a lifted nose showing aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit and passionfruit with refreshing underlying herbal notes. A delicious wine with crisp fruit flavours of passionfruit, grapefruit and gooseberry. A pleasing mineral note leads to a long lingering finish. Perfect for drinking immediately, this Sauvignon Blanc will be at its best over the next 12 months."
Wired For Wine: The delicious crispness of the Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc is our refreshing signal that spring is finally here, and at a great value to boot! The fruit flavors along with the mineral and herbal notes of this bright white are perfect with the newly sprung vegetables of the season, most any ocean fare, fish, and chicken. Pour your first chilled glass and dig into a plate of fried calamari with a spicy anchovy mayo. Another starting option for this Vicar's Choice is a dozen iced oysters served with either a tangy mignonette or cocktail sauce. For lunch, or a light dinner, this Sauvignon Blanc is perfect with your favorite salad with crumbled chevre and grilled chicken on top. We love this Saint Clair with spaghettini tossed in a light cream sauce made with white wine, fresh tomatoes, fennel and flaked salmon. It's a match made in spring! A more substantial recommendation is a pan-seared Chilean Sea Bass with a warm, young vegetable salad and bacon vinaigrette. Delectable. Take a moment, and if you're able, savor that last glass or two with a zippy lemon tart topped with a creamy spoonful of whipped cream. What are you waiting for winelovers??
