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.

  • Pinot Noir Marlborough Pioneer Block 4 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy, loamy and floral on the nose with fine underlying red fruit shaded with a touch of orange oil and some older wood. This enters the mouth with plenty of energy. The acidity lights up the palate, rich with high toned floral, raspberry and cranberry flavors. The wood creeps in on the midpalate lending this a slight creamy note and contribut... Read More

    Deeply earthy and fairly darkly fruited on the nose with notes of cherry pie and raspberry accented by hints of tea and cola.

The red fruit flavors, recalling cranberry and strawberry, are framed with slight austere tann... Read More

  • Saint Clair Pioneer Block 1 Foundation Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    In the glass, the wine had a light pale yellow color. 13% was the label listed ABV.The bouquet was mind-blowing! Very intense aromas of passionfruit, a bit of blackcurrant, hints of elderflower as well as a some minerals. The passionfruit was incredible. I do not think that I have had a similar nose on a white wine before.After taking a sip, I n... Read More

  • Saint Clair Pinot Noir Vicar's Choice 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted over Thanksgiving weekend, 2012, in Chicago at Scott's. Lovely color, good fruity notes, but light bodied and virtually no finish. I got exactly what I paid for, but I am always hoping to get lucky. Read More

  • I am a dyed in the wool fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlots, Sangiovese's and a few Chardonnays and Pinot Grigio's. I am trying to widen my spectrum to include Pinot Noir's. I live in the Pacific Northwest so the Pinot Noir's are readily available due to the large varieties from Oregon.Before I embark on purchasing some different brands I would l... Read More
