The Claire Patelin Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is a young wine not meant to be aged, it should be consumed within a year or two of release. They do not offer production notes but are typically made using stainless steel vats. These wines are all about the vineyard with minimal evasive production.

We reviewed the 2017 vintage of the Claire Patelin and we liked the wine at that time. The alcohol content is a mild 11%.
