Saint Clair Origin Marlborough Riesling

Saint Clair Origin Marlborough Riesling

Wine: Saint Clair ‘Origin’ Riesling

Producer: Saint Clair Family Estate

Country: New Zealand

Region: Marlborough

Vintage: 2018

Style: White

Blend: Riesling 100%

ABV: 10.5%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: Fragrant notes of Kaffir lime & mandarin are layered with hints of orange blossom & beeswax. On the palate, distinct minerality & fresh citrus flavours of juicy mandarin, lead to a crisp mid-palate with delicate sweetness & a smooth, off-dry & moreish finish.

The grapes were harvested from a single vineyard in Marlborough’s Blind River area of the Awatere Valley. The Blind River area is building a very good reputation for its ability to produce wines with concentrated citrus expression.

The parcel of fruit was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness & intensity of fruit flavour & varietal characteristics. After fermentation it was carefully prepared for bottling, with minimal handling.

 

Producer Info: Neal & Judy Ibbotson were pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry, first planting vineyards in the valley in 1978 & then establishing Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994. They own 160 hectares of vineyard in 10 different Marlborough locations chosen specifically for the attributes of their individual “terroir” & ability to produce top quality grapes. Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive expertise in viticulture with the talent of one of New Zealand’s leading winemaking teams led by Hamish Clark.

Since 1994, when wines from the first vintage all won medals including gold, the name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality & its award-winning record continues today. This is a sentiment shared by Bob Campbell MW, who says “Saint Clair now makes the country’s & perhaps the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc”. High praise indeed.
