Saint Clair 'Pioneer Block 18' Sauvignon Blanc 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Quite rich and moderately complex wine with a mix of passion fruit with gooseberry, green capsicum and lemon grass. It shows some power and length of flavour. Hints of matchstick add complexity. Bob Campbell, MW. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2011 Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc Pioneer Block 18 750ml

Architect Neal Charles Jones and Saint Clair's Chief Winemaker, Matt Thomson, combined their extensive experience to design Saint Clair Estate's new state of the art winery. Built for production from the 2006 harvest, the new winery is capable of crushing 300 tonnes of fruit per day. It features state of the art equipment including high-tec refrigeration control and monitoring software to further enhance the quality of Saint Clair award-winning wines. The major investment decision to develop Saint Clair's own winery facility is fueled by continued sales growth to 180,000 cases in 2005 and strong forward growth projections, particularly for the Saint Clair's award-winning Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. The Riverland's Estate location was chosen as an ideal position for the new winery due to its central location, proximity to Saint Clair's main vineyards, and where there are adjoining facilities for bottling, storage, dispatch, power and effluent discharge. The winery boasts a large temperature controlled barrel hall for storage of up to 650 oak barriques. This new production facility aims to be extremely functional and will continue to be developed to meet the specific needs for Saint Clair's quality wine production. Saint Clair's Chief Winemaker, Matt Thomson, believes the new winery will further enhance the existing prestige quality record of the Saint Clair brand. Read less

This intense white offers a rocket beam of mouthwatering and fragrant Key lime, lemongrass and ripe peach flavors that are vibrant, juicy and wonderfully persistent on the finish.
