Saint Clair Pioneer Block Riesling 2013 Marlborough

New Zealand

    Made in the German Spatlese style, this is a complex, balanced Riesling that is elegantly off-dry. Try as a foil for a spicy dish, or as a versatile accompaniment to a range of finger foods.

  • Flavours

    Citrus, Apricot, Honeysuckle

  • Origin

    Nicknamed 'Big John', after the Block 9 vineyard's owner, who stands at a towering 6' 10''. This Riesling has been made in a style reminiscent of a German Spätlese, with noticeable residual sweetness, balanced out by acidity and complexity of flavour.

  • Taste

    An inviting pale gold colour, the wine shows aromas of lime rind and grapefruit, and subtle apricot notes. Elegant and off-dry, the palate is a mixture of firm citrus and soft honeysuckle.

  • Enjoy

    An interesting alternative apéritif wine that works well alongside canapés, as well as delicately flavoured fish and seafood.

Special Distribution

Special distribution

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London. Wines labelled 'Special Distribution' are sent by courier from the Fine Wine Centre to your local Majestic before your delivery can be completed. This allows you to choose from a much greater range, but does mean delivery may take a few days longer than usual.
