A full-bodied and rich Chardonnay with complex stonefruit flavours and a touch of spice supported by underlying savoury oak notes and subtle yeast autolysis characters. Neal and Judy Ibbotson were pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry, first planting vineyards in the valley's unique climate and soils in 1978 and then establishing Saint Clair Estate in 1994. They own and developed 100 hectares of vineyards in six different Marlborough locations chosen specifically for the attributes of their individual locations and ability to produce top quality grapes. Their wines received immediate success with three medals from three wines in their first competition. Premium quality grapes, produced from vines that are now fully mature, combined with the proven experience of winemaker Matt Thomson, produce elegant, world class wines Colour: Pale gold Aroma: An intense, deliciously complex nose displaying aromas of white peach and honeysuckle with subtle oak and savoury bacon notes. ...

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Top International accolades include the trophy to Saint Clair/Matt Thomson for White Winemaker of the Year at the London International Wine Challenge, September 2008 and the coveted trophy for Best New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2005. Saint Clair Family Estate also has the distinction of being the first New Zealand wine company to win major international trophies for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the same year. The Marlborough Chardonnay is full-bodied with satisfying flavours of stone fruit and grapefruit. This is all supported by underlying nutty, spicy oak notes. The Omaka Reserve Chardonnay is a full-bodied and rich wine with complex stonefruit flavours and a touch of spice supported by underlying nutty, oak notes and subtle lees characters
