Vinification:

Directly after harvesting the fruit was transported to the winery and pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration. After settling, the juice from each batch was fermented using a variety of selected yeast in 100 per cent stainless steel at a cool temperature to retain fruit flavour and freshness. After fermentation the wine was stabilised and prepared for bottling. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its power and intensity of flavour.

Winery information:

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 ten 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 viticultural with the talent of one of New Zealand's leading winemaking teams, led by Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark. From 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.

The fruit was sourced from the "Snap Block" single vineyard in the lower Wairau. The vineyard was originally an apple orchard growing "Snap" apples. Soil Deep, free-draining, soils.

Tasting Note:

A rich rounded fresh passion fruit and gooseberry palate, with a refreshing minerality that leads to a lingering finish. Ripe passion fruit and gooseberry with refreshing minerality.

Food Recommendation:

Ideal with vegetarian cuisine such as Goat's Cheese parcels or fresh seafood such as Fruits de Mer.
