Saint Clair 2015 Vintage

Saint Clair
Premium
Viognier

Fragrant with flavours of peach, apricot and almond with an oily texture.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Pale gold.

Aroma:

Peach, apricot and fragrant blossom flowers laced with impressions of cinnamon spice.

Palate:

A textural palate with flavours of apricot and almond, lead to a subtle spicy note on the finish.

Ageing potential:

An early drinking variety, at its best over the next three years.

Winemaking:

The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night and immediately transported to the Saint Clair winery in Marlborough, where they were pressed off, settled and fermented in tank with selected yeast.

Viticulture:

The grapes for this wine were harvested from Saint Clair’s vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels wine growing district of Hawke’s Bay. The vigour moderating free-draining gravel is ideal for growing quality Viogner.

Wine Analysis:

Alcohol: 12.5% v/v, Titratable Acidity: 5.5 g/litre, Residual Sugar: 2.8g/L, pH: 3.75.

Food match:

Well matched with a large array of foods, but a perfect accompaniment for chargrilled chicken or pumpkin risotto.
