Two Serious 2011 Saint Clair ‘Pioneer Block’ Sauvignon Blancs

03-Oct-2011
The single vineyard ‘Pioneer Block' wines of Saint Clair require separate handling, the winery using 250 small tanks to manage this. The amount of detail for winemakers Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark and their team is considerable, but the result is a fascinating range of wines that express their origin and site. In essence Saint Clair is bottling ‘terroir' for keen wine enthusiasts to ponder and enjoy. The quality per se of the ‘Pioneer Block' wines has been extremely high as well, reflecting the identification of superior as well as individual vineyards by Saint Clair's owner Neal Ibbotson. Here are two of the serious ‘Pioneer Block' Sauvignon Blancs from the new 2011 vintage. www.saintclair.co.nz
