Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Chardonnay 2022

The grapes for this Saint Clair Reserve Chardonnay are sourced primarily from the family's vineyards in Marlborough’s Omaka Valley where a combination of warm days, cool nights and clay based soils contribute to greater retention of fruit flavours. Carefully hand-picked fruit is lightly whole bunch pressed and the must barrel fermented in American oak (50% new, 25% second fill, 25% third fill). The wine went through malolactic fermentation in barrel, followed by maturation on its lees for 10 months with regular stirring. Only the best barrels from each batch were selected to use in the final blend of the Omaka Reserve Chardonnay. This is an elegant and silky wine, with fragrant peach aromas, layered with toasted spice and subtle vanilla notes. Concentrated notes of fresh peach, ripe grapefruit and biscuity notes on the palate continue on the long finish. This is Saint Clair’s owners Neal and Judy Ibbotson’s perfect wine to have alongside roast chicken.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
