"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."

Accolades

“Spicy anise and pepper characters showing through and a pleasant, berryish flavour. A bit green-beanish on the finish but that will lessen over time."
Hawkes Bay Today, 11 March 2006


“Soft, up-front, light-to-medium bodied, green-tinged wine, with some plums, spice and smoky oak and a sharpish finish.”
Graeme Barrow, The Northern Advocate, 18 March 2006


"This was aroma with character, backed by the same in the mouth. The wine was light and dry with little tannin weight but surprisingly drinkable given the phrases describing its nose. 'Plums picked by dirty fingers', 'yummy' was the definite comment.”
Capital Times, 18 April 2006
