Saint Clair 2014 Vintage

Saint Clair
Marlborough Premium
Grüner Veltliner

A fresh and juicy wine with subtly fragranced fruit and spice.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson, Hamish Clark and Kyle Thompson

Colour:

Straw

Aroma:

Fresh apple cucumber, flower petals and shortcrust pastry laced with white pepper.

Palate:

Weighty and oily in texture with juicy nashi pear, honeydew melon & a hint of cinnamon.

Ageing potential:

Perfectly balanced for immediate enjoyment, this wine will continue to evolve and reward over at least the next three years.

Winemaking:

The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast. Pressing components were fermented in old oak and retained on lees post ferment to add complexity and roundness to the palate. A small percentage underwent malolactic fermentation. Free run and selected pressing components were blended post ferment and the wine was carefully finished and prepared for bottle.

Viticulture:

Produced with fruit harvested from a vineyard in the Omaka Valley. Careful crop manipulation to ensure vine balance is essential for this highly prolific and large bunch producing variety. This is the fourth cropping year for these vines.

Wine Analysis:

Alcohol: 13.5% v/v, Titratable Acidity: 5.50 g/litre, Residual Sugar: 2.80 g/l, pH: 3.21.

Food match:

Homemade chicken pie served with grilled green vegetables.
