Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Pinot Noir 2019

A deep ruby colour showboats this wine with it's complex aromas of black cherry and heady perfumed violets. Game or Lamb dishes with mushrooms make perfect table mates for this concentrated and strong flavoured Pinot Noir. The black cherry aromas flow into it's favour and mix with blackcurrant, blueberry and layers of black olive and dark chocolate. But the flavours of this wine don't stop there, a fresh coffee and vanilla pod endnote seem to linger in the mouth and may be as a result of the vineyards tight cropping and small bunching berries.

Winery Information

The Saint Clair Family Estate was first settled by the Sinclair family. One of the estate's pioneers, James Sinclair, is closely associated with the founding of the town of Blenheim. Neal and Judy Ibbotson have owned the estate since 1978, transofrming it from a vineyard to a full wine making facility and joining the ranks of Marlborough winemakers to produce fine New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and other premium wines. The very first vintage from Saint Clair Wines won awards upon its release in 1994. Saint Clair's sustainable approach to winemaking involves open canopy with good light and airflow, minimal use of sprays to control pests, and care given to individual vines to encourage good production. For instance, the vineyard employs leaf plucking and thinning of fruits and shoots. They also encourage selection without cultivation as another of their sustainsble practices. They have been using a grading system since 2001 as a management tool and for assessing the quality of each vineyard's wine batches.

Vinification

Each batch is racked off its gross lees to a mixture of new and old French oak followed by 10 months ageing on lees.

Tasting Note
A lush, full-bodied Pinot Noir with well integrated tannins and lovely freshness. Ripe cherry and plum dominate the palate, supported by subtle hints of rich coffee. 100 % new and used French oak lends elegance, structural support and savoury smoky notes.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Pinot Noir is best with fillet steak and seasonal vegetables.

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.
