100% Sauvignon Blanc

Chris Christensen is a self-taught, envelope-pushing vintner originally from rural Iowa. He burst onto the wine scene in 2011 with Bodkin wines, where he’s known for being the first American to make a Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc. He was recently dubbed the “Bubbles Innovator” on Wine Enthusiast’s 40 under 40 Tastemaker list.

This is not your blend-into-the-background bubbly. It’s 100% Sauvignon Blanc — with bubbles. It’s a quaffable summer beverage that is so light, so refreshing, that it almost transcends the genre of wine. In-line carbonation intensifies and focuses the lively citrus and passion-fruit flavors. This wine is thirst-quenching and very, very Sauvignon Blanc. As Chris says, “Es crushablé.”

One 250 millileter can of wine is equivalent to a third of a bottle of wine.

The colors on the can were inspired by the lemon-lime, passionfruit flavors of this wine.

Try a tangy goat cheese, a crisp veggie platter, or pork dumplings.

From Chris: Whatever happened to pretty, aromatic sparkling wines? The Maker wine project is about pushing the envelope, it’s about delivering. One does not half step, this is 100% Sauvignon blanc. That’s just a flex.

This wine is carbonated “in-line” right before it hits the can. I stone cold flipped out when I first tried it, it’s refreshing; tertiary aromas from secondary fermentation can tamp down attributes of sparkling wine. It’s even cleaner, even tighter, even more Sauvignon Blanc.
