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 The 2008 Saint Clair Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc won the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc over 10 Trophy in the 2007 Decanter World Wine Awards. Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Saint Clair's vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. Winemaking: The grapes were harvested very early in ...

According to the Wine Spectator: A bit sweet, with raging acidity to balance so it feels like a lemon sweet-tart candy, picking up passion fruit as the finish lingers. Drink now.

A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2009 Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 750ml


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
