Saint Clair Pioneer Block Cell Block Chardonnay 2013

Saint Clair Pioneer Block Cell Block Chardonnay 2013 $32 ★★★★★SC Pioneer Block 11 Chardonnay 2013

Sourced from the fantastic, free-draining Dillons Point dirt in Marlborough, this chardonnay just hammers home the message that our largest wine region is really on a roll churning out world class white Burgundy.  Saint Clair have never been slouches when it comes to creating great chardonnay, but the 2013 Cell Block brings it to a whole new level.  Intoxicating aromas of grilled pineapple, brulee and buttered toast dusted with vanilla and cinnamon.  Beautifully balanced, succulent and juicy to drink, there’s a hint of smoke and flint on the finish.  Outstanding.  www.saintclair.co.nz
