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.

"A bright cherry and plum flavoured wine that has lots of freshness and appeal. There is oak in support but this is a fruit focussed, vibrant wine intended for early consumption."
The Team, Wine NZ, 31 July 2005
“Cheery aroma with fresh vibrant flavours of peppery spice and cherries. A nice hint of minerality gives an exotic twist to this good Marlborough wine with light tannins.”
Greymouth Evening Star, 13 August 2005
