Tasting notes - Tropical aromas of passionfruit, guava and blackcurrant combine with nettle and subtle chalky mineral notes. The rich, full palate with grapefruit and blackcurrant is enveloped in green notes of nettle and pepper and a delicate sea salt character, through to a long, mineral finish.

ProducerNote

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”.

Winemaking

The grapes were pressed immediately after harvesting to minimise skin contact. After

cold settling, the juice from each batch was fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks

at cool temperatures, using selected yeast strains. Each batch was assessed for

quality and only the best components were selected for this blend.

A Meursault showing elegant finesse, with floral nuances, expressive fruit and buttery notes leading to a palate of lovely weight and balance, and characteristic streak of minerality. 2021 was a very challenging and difficult vintage across the Burgundy region.

Over the decades, the Jean Stodden estate from the Rhineland-Palatinate has earned its position as one of the best producers of Pinot noir in Germany. The Jean Stodden Pinot Noir is wonderfully fruity in the nose, with aromas of red berries and cherries, complemented by youthfully spicy fruit. On the palate, the wine has a good, clear structure with elegantly integrated tannins. The cuvée from vin…
