So far, the 2011s show plenty of promise and some pretty terrific wines and values. At the top of the list, not surprisingly, is Saint Clair. Saint Clair winemaker Matt Thomson is passionate about Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and he's exploring the region in depth with the Pioneer Block series, which focuses on select parcels and vineyard sites. I like those wines very much but the reserve bottling is truly the standout - aromatic and elegant, and wonderfully delicious.

"..we were immediately captivated by the wine's creamy blossom and rose petal nose. This Pinot Gris is good value at around the $20 mark."
Deborah Walton & Peter Morice, Marlborough Express, 24 January 2008
"Medium-bodied flavours of peach, apricot and a dash of mild spice. Mellow and moreish." Matched with Cashew Nut Rice Cakes.

"A very simple dry Pinot Gris. Nicely balanced, finely textured...Nice and easy I would definately recommend this as an Aperitif or with light entrées."
