The grapes are carefully selected from several vineyards in Marlborough. Marlborough is a dry, sunny viticultural region, situated at the north eastern tip of the South Island, New Zealand. Consisting of two parallel valleys, the Wairau and the Awatere, it stretches along the Pacific Coast. The vines grow in mixed alluvial soils, which are geologically young and have been distributed along the valley's floors by the Wairau and Awatere rivers. Ideal for viticulture, these alluvial soils have good drainage and low fertility, so the vine is forced to deepen its roots for hydration and nutrients, resulting in berries which are concentrated in flavour.

The grapes were harvested once they had reached the ideal maturity levels. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts, in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the fruity and zesty characteristics of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes and to preserve the quintessential elements of this Marlborough terroir.

Saint Clair Family Estate

Neal and Judy Ibbotson were pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry, first planting vineyards in the valley in 1978 and then establishing Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994. They own 160 hectares of vineyard in 10 different Marlborough locations chosen specifically for the attributes of their individual "terroir" and ability to produce top quality grapes. Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive expertise in viticulture with the talent of one of New Zealand's leading winemaking teams led by Hamish Clark. Since 1994, when wines from the first vintage all won medals including gold, the name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality and its award-winning record continues today. This is a sentiment shared by Bob Campbell MW, who says “Saint Clair now makes the country’s and perhaps the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc”.
