"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

(Tank Sample) “Pale straw and slight green hues. Very powerful and very sweaty on nose, deep, savage and pungent. Great richness on palate, luscious and juicy. Full and exotic.”
Raymond Chan, regionalwines.co.nz 29th June 2006


"Pungently scented, with ripe-fruit aromas, tropical-fruit flavours and great harmony, freshness and length."
Michael Cooper, John Belsham, Simon Waghorn, Cuisine January 2007
