"Saint Clair now makes the country’s and perhaps the world’s best
Sauvignon Blanc. Saint Clair has won more top awards for Sauvignon
Blanc in recent years than any of the three or four hundred other local
producers. Although Sauvignon Blanc is clearly Saint Clair’s
signature wine it has also earned trophies for Chardonnay, Merlot,
Pinot Noir, and Riesling over the same period."
Saint Clair's distributor in New Zealand is Negociants NZ Ltd. Saint Clair wines are widely available in fine wine stores and supermarkets and selected restaurants and cafés.
Internationally Saint Clair Family Estate has pioneered a number of new markets and its wines are now found in more than 45 countries throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Scandinavia, Asia and the Pacific.
Former grape growers Neal and Judy Ibbotson have established Saint Clair Family Estate as an award-winning wine company. In 2004 Saint Clair Estate Wines were named as finalists in New Zealand Trade and Enterprise Export Awards. In 1995 they were awarded New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit competition in London.
Reflecting such international acclaim, Saint Clair’s premium wines are currently enjoyed in leading hotels the world over, including the luxurious Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi and the deluxe London five-star hotel Claridges.
A number of international airlines including Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Sri Lankan Airlines and Icelandair also serve the Saint Clair label.
The winery, founded in 1994 produced its finest vintage ever in 2006, making an especially impressive range of Sauvignon Blanc.
Both the Vicar’s Choice and the regular Marlborough bottlings rated outstanding and are produced in large volumes.
Of equal interest are the single-vineyard Pioneer Block wines. The Pioneer Block 7 is delicious, with the pyrotechnic aromatics that distinguish the region’s finest Sauvignon Blanc.
