SAINT CLAIR 2013 SAUVIGNON BLANC PIONEER BLOCK 18 SNAP BLOCK

Saint Clair Family Estate is owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, viticulture pioneers in Marlborough since 1978. Grapes were originally supplied to local wine companies; however a desire to extend the quality achieved in the vineyard through to the finished wine led to the establishment of Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994. Their Pioneer Block wines are made from small parcels of outstanding fruit from specialist vineyard sites prized for their individual terroir characteristics. "Snap Block" or "Block 18" was originally an apple orchard growing the Snap variety on the fertile and free-draining soils of this site-- which produce extremely healthy vines. With their maritime climate, this is a cooler area with a longer ripening season. The nose is rife with citrus, gooseberry, minerality, herbs and a drop of cream. It's brash, bold and beautiful. The palate leaps with fresh fruit and vibrant acidity, citrus, hints of herbaceous grass and mixed tropical fruits, whipped clover honey and another hint of cream, all within a lush framework kept aloft by the intense, intrinsic acidity. This will easily cut through and pair with shellfish quite well.
