"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

"Powerful aromas of crushed nettles, squeezed limes, passionfruit sorbet, gooseberries and lemonade - and guess what? It tastes the same."
Yvonne-Marie Lorkin, Hawkes Bay Today, 7 April 2007


(Tank Sample) “A more refined nose, elegant, with delicacy and proportion. Elegant, refined and tight on the palate. Less rich and pungent, yet full of flavour."
Raymond Chan, regionalwines.co.nz, 29 June 2006
