"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."

“ ...Would you be influenced by a vicar’s choice of wine. This vicar likes an available red wine that goes well with good company with a light tannic structure and ripe sweet plums in abundance and a sprinkle of cinnamon.”
Greymouth Evening Star, 23 July 2005

"... has lovely savoury spices, baked plums and is nicely balanced without the big oak, big tannin or big alcohol. Warm and smooth."
