Accolades

"No, Saint Clair didn't give me any money to write about their wines. However, I've had a tasting with Matt Thomson, the Chief Winemaker, and I have been truly impressed by this Pinot Noir, and for two main reasons: it's one of the most Burgundian style Pinot Noir I've had from Marlborough, and at $25, as Matt puts it: "It's bloody cheap!"
Ben Longhurst, Lancome Loves Men Magazine, 21 June 2007


"rich, sturdy, plums and mushrooms, balancing acidity and light tannins."
