SAINT CLAIR MARLBOROUGH ORIGIN SAUVIGNON BLANC
Saint Clair is one of the Pioneer producers in Marlborough and seek to raise the profile and quality of Sauvignon Blanc from the region beyond the heights it has already hit by producing single vineyard site wines through their Pioneer Block range culminating in the iconic Wairau Reserve Sauvignon, which is regarded as one of the best if not the best Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc on the market.
Fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards located predominantly in the lower Wairau sub-region. This is what Saint Clair regards as Marlborough’s best sub-region for Sauvignon Blanc, producing wines with heightened expression. Each vineyard block was harvested at optimum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. Grapes were transported to the winery quickly and pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact. After cold settling the juice from each batch was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeast strains. Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected for this premium blend.
Expect tropical notes of passionfruit, guava and blackcurrant combine with nettle and subtle chalky mineral notes. A rich full palate of tropical flavours including passionfruit guava and blackcurrant leading to a long mineral lingering finish.
Ideal with salads, shellfish or Asian spiced dishes.
