Neal and Judy Ibbotson were pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry, first
planting vineyards in the valley in 1978 and then establishing Saint Clair Family Estate
in 1994. They own 160 hectares of vineyard in 10 different Marlborough locations
chosen specifically for the attributes of their individual "terroir" and ability to produce
top quality grapes. Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive expertise in viticulture with
the talent of one of New Zealand's leading winemaking teams led by Hamish Clark.
Since 1994, when wines from the first vintage all won medals including gold, the
name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality and its award-winning record
continues today. This is a sentiment shared by Bob Campbell MW, who says “Saint
Clair now makes the country’s and perhaps the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc”.
Selected yeasts were used for fermentation. The wine was hand plunged throughout
fermentation. It was then gently pressed off its skins and underwent malolactic
fermentation before being blended and prepared for bottling.
Juicy red fruits dominate the palate. Ripe red plums, raspberry and red cherry
flavours are balanced with a good acidity and a subtle toasty finish.
Enjoy on its own or with charcuterie meats or pheasant stew.
