"This is number 10 and bottom of the long list of sauvignon blancs made by Saint Clair, which speaks volumes for the quality of the others in a remarkable line-up. A crisp, good-value lightweight made to the classic Marlborough recipe, nettles and all."
Warren Baron's Christmas Wine Guide, The Dominion Post, December 2006

"Vicars, like many of us, will gladly worship a bargain. this great-value wine offers very good depth of fresh, pure, herbal and tropical-fruit characters, finishing crisp, dry and zesty."
Michael Cooper, John Belsham, Simon Waghorn, Cuisine January 2007
