View all characteristics Discover more about this wine

Saint Clair is named after James Sinclair, who was responsible for the first settlements in Blenheim, New Zealand, home of the winery on the South Island. Founded in 1978, the family business is one of the pioneers in wine growing in Marlborough. That is why the link with pioneer James Sinclair was quickly made. Saint Clair owns over 270 hectares of vineyards in Marlborough on the South Island and in Hawke's Bay on the North Island.

After pressing, part of the wine is fermented in French and American oak, some of which is new. The wood-bearing part undergoes malolactic fermentation, a technique that converts the sharp acids into soft, round acids. In the glass, this beautiful chardonnay has a light straw yellow color with stone fruit, hazelnuts and sweet spices in the nose. On the palate, the Saint Clair Marlborough Origin Chardonnay is a full and creamy wine with peach, citrus and biscuit. Delicious with grilled chicken in cream sauce or dishes with salmon.
