The fruit for this wine was selected from vineyards across Marlborough sub-regions, predominantly the lower Wairau Valley subregion. In this region, the synergy of climate and soil come together to produce wines with extraordinary purity of fruit. Situated in the northeastern corner of New Zealand's South Island, the vineyards are surrounded by the Pacific Ocean to the east and hinterland mountain ranges to the north and south. The vines are pruned using three or four-cane vertical shoot positioning (VSP). Each vineyard yield is managed appropriately and is dependent upon the ability to ripen grapes to the desired flavor spectrum.

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. The vines are sustainably cultivated and the estate holds the Sustainable Wines of New Zealand certification. 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”.
