Stewart Maclennan and Hamish Clark
Fragrant spice and toasted bready notes combined with ripe nectarine, peach and a hint of lemon rind.
A round, generous and complex wine with an elegant structure and refined finish. The palate displays flavours of stone fruit and citrus with a subtle oak character.
Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue to evolve and gain complexity over at least the next five years.
Winemaking and Viticulture:
Predominantly harvested from Saint Clair’s exceptional vineyard in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough. The grapes were pressed and the juice only briefly settled so that the fermentation contained some grape solids which create interest and texture in the resulting wine.
