Bishop's Leap is the Sauvignon Blanc from the New Zealand winery Saint Clair.
Grown in Marlborough, an areaparticularly suited to the cultivation of white grape varieties, this Sauvignon Blanc is integrated with grapes from the Rapaura, Wairau and Brancott Valley sub-zones.
The alluvial soils with rocky outcrops guarantee excellent drainage capacity, while the presence of sea breezes and favorable temperatures contribute to the correct development of the aromatic density.
Transferred to the winery immediately after harvest, the grapes are fermented in steel, which limits the presence of oxygen, in order to preserve all the aromatic fragrance.
It is a pale straw yellow colored wine, dominating the nose with tropical fruits such as grapefruit, guava, melon, accompanied by pleasant tones of lime and pineapple. Fresh and consistent on the palate, it remains full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit and good persistence.
