The 2010 Pinot Noirs were outstanding with Saint Clair leading the way with no less than 4 Top Tip Awards. .....All of the Saint Clair Top Tip winners came from their Pioneer Block range and we would suggest that you can't go wrong with any wine from this range but that our favourite was Block 16 Awatere Pinot Noir.

Accolades

"...sensational richness of passionfruit flavours on a poised, refreshingly zesty palate. Perfect lunchtime sipping, with salads and aromatic dishes."
Raymond Chan, Regional Wines Grapevine, February 2008


"A soft, fleshy wine, the fruit richness covers the acidity and underlying spiced apple emerges to linger. I imagine this would be excellent with salt and pepper squid, and with that apple nuance it would also be an excellent accompaniment to a roast pork crackling snack."
Kingsley and Sam, First Glass Wines and Spirits, 10 August 2007
