Saint Clair 2009 Vintage

Saint Clair
Marlborough Premium
Sauvignon Blanc

A deliciously crisp and intense wine showing flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant with underlying gooseberry tones.


Matt Thomson


Pale straw with green hues.


Intense and powerful aromas of black currant, white currant, passionfruit, grapefruit and gooseberry leap out of the glass.


A full, crisp and powerful wine with intense flavours of passionfruit and blackcurrant, with underlying gooseberry tones. Mouth-watering acidity and an intense minerality are balanced by a full yet elegant palate that leads to a long lingering finish.

Ageing potential:

Perfect for drinking immediately this wine will be at its best over the next one to two years.


Fruit for this wine was sourced from a variety of vineyards and sub-regions, predominantly the lower and central Wairau Valley. Each vineyard block was monitored carefully and harvested when it had reached maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. Every load of grapes was transported to the winery with haste and pressed off immediately to minimise skin contact and juice deterioration. After settling, the juice from each batch was fermented using a variety of selected yeast in 100% stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. Each batch was assessed for quality and then only the best components were selected for their potential to add to the overall quality and complexity of the Saint Clair Marlborough blend. Once blended the resulting wine was then carefully prepared for bottling.
