"This vineyard site has proved to be the building block for some of Saint Clair’s finest wines. This is the vineyard where Saint Clair Family Estate first discovered the fruit to make their flagship Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc.

The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard owned by the Sowman family on the fertile, free-draining soils of the lower Wairau Valley. The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool of the evening at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.

Aromatic white currant and passionfruit with a hint of oyster shell. Luscious tropical fruit and fresh apple flavours combine with a wet stone purity. The palate is linear and focused with salty, mineral notes lingering on the finish." Winery
