Saint Clair are masters of Marlborough. This Pioneer Block 3 is one of many single vineyard variations, this one being essential Marlborough Sav. Classic passionfruit and nettle notes are, however, so beautifully concentrated and balanced into weighty texture that it is pretty hard to imagine this style being done any better. Expertly done, this wine never fails to impress.

Overview

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc

Its Origins

Saint Clair Family Estate is owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, viticulture pioneers in Marlborough since 1978. Grapes were originally supplied to local wine companies; however a desire to extend the quality achieved in the vineyard through to the finished wine led to the establishment of Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994. The Saint Clair name originates from the vineyard property, first settled by the Sinclair family. Pioneer James Sinclair built one of the first homes in Blenheim and was closely associated with the early development of the town. Over time the name of the property reverted to the original Saint Clair. Saint Clair has developed six vineyards in different sites in Marlborough, including the Rapaura, Awatere, Waihopai and Omaka Valleys. Only superior fruit from the best locations for each individual variety is selected for the Saint Clair label.

What The Critics Say

Bob Campbell MW

"Crisp, dry sauvignon blanc with lime, gooseberry and cut grass flavours together with a suggestion of riper tropical fruit characters."
