Accolades

“Still fresh and youthful but each passing month will open this up well. Plenty of uncluttered Marlborough fruit, good spine and balance and lots of drinkability. No hurry.”
Winestate Magazine, May/June 2006


"Saint Clair has made its Unoaked Chardonnay look rich, groovy and inviting-and it delivers. Fresh-cut nectarine, grapefruit and peaches on the nose and there’s power and length on the palate. One of the best unoaked chardonnays I’ve ever tried-that’s a fact.” 4.5 stars.
Yvonne Dudman, Hawkes Bay Today, 1 July 2006


“...This unoaked, fruit-driven chardonnay is fresh and charming, overflowing with suggestions of peaches, pears, apricots, a suggestion of creamy nuttiness and a crisp, juicy finish.”
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 5 July 2006
