Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Chardonnay 750ml
Aroma: Fragrant peach, popcorn and toasted hazelnut with smoky nuances.
Palate: Round and silky with nectarine, ripe grapefruit and biscuit notes.
Ageing Potential: Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue to evolve and reward over the next five to ten years with careful cellaring.
Viticulture: Sourced primarily from Saint ClairÕs vineyards in MarlboroughÕs Omaka valley where a combination of warm days, cool nights and clay based soils contribute to greater retention of fruit flavours. The fruit is a blend of Chardonnay clones, predominantly Mendoza and Burgundian Clone 95. The vines were monitored carefully during ripening and hand harvested at optimum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.
v/v Residual sugar 2.1/litre
Acidity 5.4g/litre pH 3.36
Food Match: This is Saint ClairÕs owners Neal and Judy IbbotsonÕs perfect wine to have alongside roast chicken.
