The single vineyard ‘Pioneer Block’ wines of Saint Clair require separate handling, the winery using 250 small tanks to manage this. The amount of detail for winemakers Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark and their team is considerable, but the result is a fascinating range of wines that express their origin and site. In essence Saint Clair is bottling ‘terroir’ for keen wine enthusiasts to ponder and enjoy. The quality per se of the ‘Pioneer Block’ wines has been extremely high as well, reflecting the identification of superior as well as individual vineyards by Saint Clair’s owner Neal Ibbotson.

Sauvignon Blanc

The Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc has an impressive string of accolades which have made it New Zealand’s most awarded Sauvignon Blanc.

The Pioneer Block Sauvignon Blanc wines have subtle stylistic differences and have been handcrafted to reflect the unique influence of terroir on the grape variety.

The premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a full, crisp and powerful with intense flavours and aromas that leap out of the glass.

Saint Clair Vicar’s Choice Sauvignon Blanc is a light-bodied, dry, crisp wine with typical Marlborough flavours of gooseberry, passionfruit, and grapefruit.
