Saint Clair Pioneer Block 4 Sawcut Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Full-coloured, with generous, spicy flavours, a hint of olives and impressive complexity. Savoury and rich, with a velvety texture.
WINESTATE Volume 34 (2011) 2011
Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Grown in Marlborough's Use Valley, 40 kilometers south of the Wairau Valley, the Pinot Noirs from this site are deeply coloured and flavoursome, although sometimes a bit leafy. The 2009 vintage, matured in French oak casks (53 per cent new), is richly floral, vibrantly fruity and youthful, with pure, ripe, sweet-fruit flavours of cherries and plums, seasoned with French oak. An elegant, intensely varietal wine with fresh, lively acidity, it's well worth cellaring.
Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wines
Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
Sourced from limestone country, this has a more ethereal and breathy nose; it's fragrant and elegant, with sweet Eastern spices and dark-cherry fruits, the oak is in check and there's a sense of both richness and finesse. The palate's nicely structured with a lithe, fine-tannined edge, and the acidity works away handsomely to keep it all in check. Great length and balance.
