Saint Clair Pioneer Block 17 Plateau Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Merlot
Saint Clair is most often associated with top-notch wines from Marlborough, but this outstanding wine comes from a single vineyard in the prized Gimblett Gravels section of Hawke’s Bay. The nose has intense black fruit, floral and chocolatey notes, with spicy fruitcake richness in the background. Lovely depth, flow and weight characterise the palate, with powerful flavours, positive oak influence and poised ripe tannins. Superb with roast lamb.
