"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."

“It is difficult to beat Saint Clair whites for deliciousness and value, and this chardonnay is no exception. I loved the delicious suggestions of grapefruit, ripe peaches and bergamot, which are backed by nutty, slightly creamy complexities reminiscent of freshly baked biscuits.”
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 22 January 2006

“I also like the Saint Clair 2004 Chardonnay as a vibrant and tangy white at a great price.”
Charles Gill, Taranaki Daily News, 20 December 2005

“This wine rips the pants off most Hawke’s Bay chardonnay I’ve tried recently. Where to begin? I could start with the juicy, seductive stone fruit with a smack of citrus. Then proceed with the uncovering of layers of soft oak and flavours of fig, cinnamon and orange peel. This wine is multidimensional, full and satisfying and beautifully put together.”
Yvonne Dudman, Hawkes Bay Today, 10 December 2005
