Tasting Notes

Pale green.


Herbaceous aromas of green nettle, blackcurrant and tomato leaf with a hint of greengage plum.


Fresh, crisp and generous with intense flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry and green apple. A chalky texture combines with a saltiness and minerality adding to a persistent finish.

Ageing potential:

Drinking beautifully now and best enjoyed over the next two years.

Winemaking and Viticulture

Stewart Maclennan


The juice was pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling, the juice was fermented using a variety of selected yeast in 100 per cent stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its power and intensity of flavour.


The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard within the Awatere Valley (South of the township of Blenheim). The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. This is the last of the Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc vineyards to fully ripen and hence harvested late in the season.
