So far, the 2011s show plenty of promise and some pretty terrific wines and values. At the top of the list, not surprisingly, is Saint Clair. Saint Clair winemaker Matt Thomson is passionate about Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and he's exploring the region in depth with the Pioneer Block series, which focuses on select parcels and vineyard sites. I like those wines very much but the reserve bottling is truly the standout - aromatic and elegant, and wonderfully delicious.

Riesling

Saint Clair a number of styles of Riesling. Saint Clair's Noble Harvest Riesling is made from botrytised Riesling. This wine is only made in vintages when the season provides for extra hanging time and therefore growth in the botrytis infection of the fruit.

Under the Pioneer Block label there is a Germanic Spätlese style Riesling where the natural residual sugar is balanced by firm acidity creating an off-dry impression.

The Premium Range Riesling is made in a slightly off-dry style with wide appeal to a large following of Riesling lovers.

The Vicar’s Choice Riesling is light-bodied and show distinct Riesling characters of citrus, limes and grapefruit.
