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.

"The taste is terrific: plenty of lemon and honey with a dash of kerosene and a slight peachiness. A big, smooth well-rounded wine...Aging well and good value at around $19 a bottle, you can't go wrong."
Deborah Walton & Peter Morice, Manawatu Standard, 14 February 2008

"Delicious floral, lemony, honeyed aromas in this wine. On the palate it is crisp, clean and appleish with excellent minerality. I'd be absolutely happy serving this wine with grilled crayfish tails or pan-seared, juicy scallops."
Graeme Barrow, Hawkes Bay Today, 17 February 2007
