Saint Clair Pioneer Block Pinot Noir 2012 Marlborough

New Zealand

    This is a real thug of a Pinot Noir. It's a bit like a prop forward dressed in a tutu; it's not fooling anyone. It's heavy on the cherry fruit with just a hint of delicate Pinot spice. Best guzzled watching the rugger.

  • Origin

    Saint Clair Pioneer Block wines are made from small parcels of outstanding fruit identified by our winemaker. Fruit for this wine was sourced from Saint Clair's own vineyard at Doctor's Creek, and blended with a small amount from the Southern Valleys to add complexity.

  • Taste

    Bright ruby in colour, aromas of raspberry and plum are complemented by a touch of spice. A luscious and soft palate with flavours of redcurrant, cherries and an added warmth from ageing in oak barrels.

  • Enjoy

    This is perfectly matched with tuna or beef fillet with mushrooms and will cellar for the next two to five years.
