Food Pairings for Saint Clair Premium Pinot Noir
Editorial Reviews for Saint Clair Premium Pinot Noir
Deeply earthy and fairly darkly fruited on the nose with notes of cherry pie and raspberry accented by hints of tea and cola. This is lovely in the mouth, bright and zesty yet with a touch of roundness, though it still retain good clarity in the mouth. The red fruit flavors, recalling cranberry and strawberry, are framed with slight austere tannins that lend this a slightly chiseled feel in the mouth. The backend shows fine herbal and slightly salty mineral note through the gauze of raspberry fruit thats topped with just a hint of herbal stemminess. The finish is just a touch dry, refreshingly so with moderate length to the mineral driven dry red berry flavors that end with as burst of wood spice. Air allows the tannins to build a bit in the mouth, sucking some of the clarity here and adding more wood spice to the palate, but this is remains attractive. 87pts
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.

To date silver medals have been awarded in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Cuisine magazine and the Wine Advocate, USA have both also provided excellent quality reviews. Within the Premium Range the slightly simpler, approachable but very true to variety, Saint Clair Marlborough Pinot Noir provides excellent value for money and has a luscious medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a round, soft, full palate, well-balanced acidity, supple tannins and lingering flavours of blackberry and boysenberry. 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...
