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.
Other factors contributing to wine quality include a sustainable approach with minimal use of vineyard sprays, open canopy with good light and airflow, leaf plucking, fruit and shoot thinning and selection with no cultivation. After harvest the fruit is moved rapidly from vine, to press, to tank and barrel, to preserve fruit quality and character.
Tasting Note :
Lifted aromas of passionfruit, blackcurrant and grapefruit combine with refreshing herbal notes. Light bodied and fresh with typical Marlborough flavours of passionfruit, stone fruit and grapefruit. A subtle herbaceous thread and mineral notes lead to a long and lingering finish.
