Producer Note
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”.
Vintage
2015 saw very few spring frosts and a hot dry long summer and ripening period.
Yields were moderate to low, with great flavour and concentration.
Vineyard
The grapes for this wine are grown in Saint Clair's vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels
region of Hawkes Bay. The 10 year old vines are planted on the stoniest part of the
vineyard. These stony soils are vigour moderating free-draining soils, ideal for growing
Viognier. The vines are trained using the VSP Guyot system there is reasonably high
exposure as a result, reflected in the ripeness of the wine. The grapes are harvested
in the cool of the night, preserving the varietal characteristics.
Winemaking
Free run juice was separated from the pressings, with the light pressings blended
back in later. Stainless steel fermentation took place, using selected yeast strains to
enhance the varietal characters. The wine was left on the yeast lees for a period to
increase the texture.
Tasting Note
Pale gold colour. A supple and elegant wine displaying prominent stone fruit notes of
peach, apricot and almond. Aromas of fragrant blossom flowers and apricot with
spice and a long finish.
Serving Suggestion
The perfect accompaniment to chargrilled chicken and pumpkin risotto.
