"Clair Family Estate now sits alongside Villa Maria as one of New Zealand’s most awarded wineries. And it’s nice to know it’s still New Zealand family-owned."

Pioneer Block


Pioneer Block 12 Lone Gum Gewurztraminer

The fruit was sourced from the Lone Gum vineyard in the Dog Point region in the lower Omaka Valley directly west of Blenheim. There is a lone gum tree that sits in the middle of the vineyard which is lit up at night. This has been the subject matter of photos by local photographer Kevin Judd.

The 2008 vintage of this wine has won top international trophies including the following at the Decanter International Wine Awards 2009.
