"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."

“Warm, savoury, forest-floor aromas combine with cold tea, cherries and mace. Flavour-wise it is youthful and spicy with good weight, a solid oak backbone and slippery soft tannins (5 stars).”
Yvonne Dudman, Hawkes Bay Today, 4 February 2006

“Marlborough, mellow and forward with gentle acidity and light tannins; plums, cherries, light oak, savoury and balanced.”
Graeme Barrow, Bay of Plenty Times, 22 February 2006

“If you like your Pinot luscious and full, then this is the wine for you. Cherry, raspberry and a underlying tobacco wood character on the nose, cherry and plum in the mouth and velvet and smooth. A good buy at the price.”
Aaron Watson, Capital Times, 8 February 2006

“Soft, fresh, cherryish and strawberry fruited nose. Softish palate, but with brightness of fruit and freshness of acidity. Elegantly sized, the extraction is well-balanced. Good richness to match, good length. The most preferred of the 2004 vintage wines”.
Raymond Chan, 29 June 2006
