INFO: The name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality and its award-winning record continues today. The vintage proceeded in near perfect conditions, with 2019 producing exceptional quality fruit with very concentrated flavours with excellent acidity.
The grapes for this wine are grown in Saint Clair's vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels region of Hawkes Bay. The 10 year old vines are planted on the stoniest part of the vineyard. These stony soils are vigour moderating free-draining soils, ideal for growing Viognier. The vines are trained using the VSP Guyot system there is reasonably high exposure as a result, reflected in the ripeness of the wine. The grapes are harvested in the cool of the night, preserving the varietal characteristics.
The wine was left on the yeast lees imparting texture and complexity to the resulting wine. An elegant wine displaying prominent notes of white peach, nectarine and fragrant almond blossom laced with impressions of clove and nutmeg spice. Rich and creamy on the palate through to a fresh and spicy finish.
