    Description

    Saint Clair Family Estate was founded by Neal and Judy Ibbotson who are the directors of the winery with more than 30 years viticulture knowledge of the Marlborough region. The company is a family business with the next generation also involved. With quality as a company value it is essential that the very best fruit is sourced and utilised to make the best wine possible, and hence adhere to a core company value. 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.

    A wide choice in Marlborough Vineyard sites, including the Wairau, Awatere and Ure Valleys as well as a vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels wine growing district in Hawke’s Bay, allows Saint Clair to specialise its plantings by grape variety in the sub-regions that provide the most suitable terroir for each. In 2001 Saint Clair introduced a ‘grading system’ for all its vineyards different wine batches and marks them out of 10 for quality each year. This provides valuable information with records now over a period of time showing which vineyards provide the best fruit and which varieties produce the best quality in each of the vineyards.

      New Zealand Pinot noir & SB are always a good choice. This one is has a lot of fruits with a touch of oak.
      Really nice. Excellent for grill red meat.

    The 2020 Pinot Noir Omaka Reserve presents a brooding nose, then turns round and expansive with an easy-to-like charm. Soft damson fruit and subtle oak-derived festive spice characters create a flowing, mouthfilling style; the tannins are gently mouthcoating with a fine powdery texture, while the acidity is gently refreshing. Harmonious and rather tranquil.
