Tasting Notes: A full, crisp and powerful wine showing intense flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant, with underlying gooseberry tones. This wine has full yet elegant palate, subtle minerality and a well balanced long, lingering finish.

Producer Details: Neal and Judy Ibbotson were pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry, first planting vineyards in the valley in 1978 and then establishing Saint Clair Estate in 1994. They own 100 hectares of vineyards in six different Marlborough locations chosen specifically for the attributes of their individual locations and ability to produce top quality grapes. Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive viticultural expertise 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.

In The Vineyard: Alluvial, silt soils. Fruit for this wine was sourced from a selection of vineyards and sub-regions including the Lower Wairau Valley and Rapaura. Each vineyard block was harvested when it reached maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness

In The Winery: Grapes were pressed immediately to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration. After settling, the juice from each batch was fermented using a variety of selected yeast in 100 per cent stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected. Once blended the resulting wine was then carefully prepared for bottling.
