Saint Clair Pinot Gris 2016

100% Pinot Gris from a selection of vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough.

Free-run juice was drained from the press and cold settled before a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the varietal aromas. A small portion was fermented in old oak and underwent malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity and texture. The parcels of wine were selected and blended, then stabilised and carefully prepared for bottling.

Winemaker's Comments

Aromas of freshly baked bread crust straight from the oven, and fragrant ripe pear. The palate is fresh and juicy with flavours of baked pear crumble. Finely structured with a rich, silky mouthfeel and a dry finish.

    "This wine has a togetherness that impressed the panel. It is made using fruit from both the Awatere and Wairau Valleys, a portion of which has seem some old oak to sand away a few edges. The baked pear flavours are presented with freshness and clarity. An engaging dry style."
