The 2010 Pinot Noirs were outstanding with Saint Clair leading the way with no less than 4 Top Tip Awards. .....All of the Saint Clair Top Tip winners came from their Pioneer Block range and we would suggest that you can't go wrong with any wine from this range but that our favourite was Block 16 Awatere Pinot Noir.
Saint Clair 2008 Vintage
This light-bodied, elegant wine shows refreshing citrus, honey and lime flavours with a round, smooth finish.
Aroma:Bright citrus aromas of sweet lime and a touch of mandarin leap from the glass with subtle hints of fresh spring flowers.
Palate:This light-bodied, easy drinking wine shows distinct Riesling characters of ripe limes and grapefruit on the palate. The wine has a distinct mineral note and good fruit weight which follows through with well-balanced acidity and a round, smooth, pleasing finish.
Ageing potential:Perfect for drinking immediately, this Riesling will continue to reward for the next two to three years.
Alcohol: 12.5%, Titratable Acidity: 7.8g/litre, Residual Sugar: 8.2g/litre, pH: 3.11.
Food match:Enjoy on its own or match with fresh
seafood, roast pork with apple sauce,
or lightly spiced Thai curries.
