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.

“Very fruity and fresh, perfect for salmon or first courses of poultry or light meat.”

Ben Giliberti, Washington, 25 January 2006

“With sweet cherries up front and a smoky savoury palate, this medium-bodied wine ia a true pinot. Great value at $16.”

Glenda Neil, Next Magazine, 13 January 2005

“A lighter weight wine that will suit almost anything except the heaviest of dark red meat dishes! Fantastic introductory Pinot Noir at this price.”
Raymond Chan, Grapevine, July 2005
