"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

"Oak and spice were noted on the noise, and it was full and rich in the mouth, very malolactic, with stonefruit, oak and nutty characters - balanced and strong."
Capital Times, 18 April 2007

"It's so delicious now but will it last? One of our good customers recently brought in the 1992 vintage of this label for me to try and the wine was in very fine form. So this should carry on drinking magnificently for a while yet."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2007

"There's perfumed creamy oak and stonefruit on the nose and smoky, savoury, spicy oak in the rich, powerful, creamy textured palate with grilled stonefruit, hints of citrus, caramel and a very long rounded finish."
