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

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Intense and strongly varietal sauvignon blanc with tree fruit, nectarine, citrus, lime, passionfruit, guava, capsicum and an attractive saline influence. A rich, seamless wine that consistently earns well-deserved top scores 26 FEB 2021." Drink 2021 - 2025

5 Stars Cuisine Magazine (2019 vintage)

"Knife-edge herbaceousness with seductive juicy lime, rose and whitepeach notes. This class act reflected all that and more on the palate while also providing refreshing and refined mineral elegance."
