Saint Clair Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Tuatara Bay is actually produced by the famous Marlborough producer Saint Clair. This is a vibrant, fruity, medium bodied Pinot Noir with a round, full, soft palate dominated by cherry notes and hints of plumbs and redcurrant.

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

I did not like this at all. It took all the standard traits of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (grapefruit, grass) and basically added red food coloring dye.

Have had numerous :) bottles of this wine during the last 6 months. I really enjoy (as does my wife) the ripe raspberry and blueberry (great Finnish forest berries by the way) character combined with a light/medium body for a very crisp and ripe overall freshness. Exceptional even for a NZ Pinot Noir. This is not a wine for everyone, but we really like it. Works well on its own or like today combined with pike-perch (kuha) and champagne sauce.
