"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
"Saint Clair is New Zealand's supreme sauvignon blanc maker so it's hardly surprising to discover they make the best sparkling example...Delicious!"
Bob Campbell, MW Air New Zealand In flight Magazine

"Of Saint Clair's several intense Pioneer Block sauvignons, I've come to enjoy the Sawcut Block 4 for its wonderful, intensity, fragrant fruit and herbs, suggestions of mineral, silky texture and its well-balanced power."
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 6 February 2008
