Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2008

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 Sauvignon Blanc is a full and crisp, powerful wine with intense aromas and flavours of passion fruit, blackcurrant, underlying gooseberry and herbal tones. Mouth-watering acidity is balanced by a full yet elegant palate that leads to a long lingering finish

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

Tinged by the taste of artificial sweetner, but not completely undrinkable. Tolerable if you're only have 1 glass.

Bright and jazzy, this is a bit raucous but gets a kick from citrusy acidity and a distinct minerality as the green apple and spearmint flavors race through the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2008 Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 750ml
