The Saint Clair Pioneer Block 18 Snap Block vineyard was originally an apple orchard growing the Snap variety. The very fertile and free draining soils of this site produce extremely healthy vines. This vineyard produces fruit with intense blackcurrant and grapefruit flavours.

Big, concentrated and quite broad wine with box hedge, toast, honey, passion fruit and tree fruit flavours. Quite a ripe, complex and unusual flavour profile. Impressively rich with good weight and mouth feel. Rating 91 - Bob Campbell MW, BobsWinesReview.com
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with a slight green hue.
Passionfruit, blackcurrant and grapefruit notes.
A rich rounded fresh passionfruit and blackcurrant palate, with a salty minerality that leads to a lingering finish.
Drinking beautifully now and will be best enjoyed over the next two years.
An ideal match with fresh salads and seafood or grilled chicken and vegetables.
