2021 St Clair Pioneer Block 10 Twin Hills Chardonnay
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
93/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Rich, weighty, silken-textured chardonnay with white peach, oyster shell, hazelnut and spicy oak flavours. Vibrant, tangy, high-energy wine with an ethereal texture. Good drinking now but should mellow with bottle age. 09 FEB 2023." Drink 2023 - 2029
90/100 Decanter World Wine Awards 2022
"Elegant toasty oak infused with melon, peach and white florals with a custard texture and a fresh, citrus finish."
