Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Chardonnay 2018

With aromas of peach and spice this pale gold wine is elegant and balanced. It's stone fruit and savory oak flavours work with roast chicken salad dishes and seafood in rich sauces. Partially hand picked and whole bunch pressed the level of attention that goes into the Chardonnay is to preserve the strength of the fruit flavours and the characteristics of the vineyard. The Omaka Reserve fruits come from the Southern Valleys of Marlborough, where the soils are clay based, helping to preserve the flavours. Although it's more than ready to drink now the flavour will change if carefully stored for up to another four years.

Neal and Judy Ibbotson were one of the original pioneers in the Marlborough wine industry They first planted vineyards in the Wairau valley in 1978 and then established the Saint Clair Estate in 1994. They now own over 100 hectares of vineyards in six different Marlborough locations. These locations were specifically selected for their ability to produce top quality grapes and for the unique terroir.

Neal began to combine his extensive knowledge of viticulture with the blazing talent of Hamish Clark. The combination proven to be a huge success and Saint Clair has enjoyed massive success locally and internationally. This is displayed in the many Trophies and Gold medals won by this remarkable winery. Saint Clair is a name that has become internationally recognised as a producer of world class wines.

Vinification - The fruit was carefully handpicked and whole bunch pressed. The wine was barrel fermented in american oak (50% new, 25% second fill, 25% third fill). Selected yeast strains were used for fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged on its lees for 10 months with regular stirring. Only the best barrels from each batch were selected to use in the final blend. The wine was then blended and carefully prepared for bottling.

Viticulture - This wine is made up of small batches of fruit from Saint Clair's own Omaka vineyard in Marlborough.

Tasting Note - A full-bodied and rich wine with complex stonefruit flavours and a touch of spice supported by underlying nutty, oak notes and subtle lees characters.

Everyday Serving Suggestion - Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Chardonnay is a perfect wine to have alongside roast chicken.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.


What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!


What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 


What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
