"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."

"This Marlborough pinot has a blood-red hue, a soft currant nose, a sharpish berry flavour and a more subdued cherry aftertaste."
Brian Prebble, The Press, 26 April 2007

"Lifted aromas of black forest gateaux, with some earthy, lush spices and baked strawberry and plum characters showing through. It is fleshy, ripe and smooth to drink, oozing classic pinot flavours. Amazing value!"
Yvonne-Marie Lorkin, Havelock North Village Press, 26 June 2007

"The palate is gamey and dressed with raspberry and boysenberry. This wine has good bones and will make old bones if cellared."
Mike East, Avenues Magazine, 30 June 2007
