"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."
Bob Campbell, Master of Wine Air New Zealand In Flight Magazine

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
