After growing grapes in Marlborough since 1978, Neil & Judy Ibbotson established Saint Clair in 1994. Since then they have grown into one of Marlborough's top and most awarded wineries and still family owned. Tonight we had Chief wine-maker Hamish Clark present wines from the Pioneer Block and Reserve ranges. Hamish gave us some rare insights into the background of these wines; the challenges and solutions required to produce both large quantity and high-end low volume wines. Hamish has been with Saint Clair since 2001 and has been responsible (along with Consultant Matt Thomson) for producing the most awarded Sauvignon Blancs in the world. And although obviously best know for their Sauvignon Blancs, they produce a wide and varied range as we discovered tonight.
