"Each time I’ve seen a new vintage of their premium Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, I’ve believed it was the best NZ Sauvignon of its year."

Accolades

"Quite an internse wine with lovely fruit purity and flavours suggesting honeysuckle, pear, ripe apple and spice. The wine has a great balance and an ethereal texture with a gentle and nearly dry finish"
Huon Hooke, Bob Campbell MW, Gourmet Traveller, Dec/Jan 2009


"Is a late-harvest style, sweet with lashings of rich, juicy tropical fruit - pawpaw, mango, rip peach. Just the thing to have with a fruit salad or strawberries or ripe cheese."
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 23 January 2008


"...it's definitely at the sweeter end of the spectrum - so if you've found pinot gris a tad dry in the past, this will put a smile on your smacker. Deliciously ripe and spicy and fantastic with thai chicken salad."
Yvonne-Marie Lorkin, Manawatu Standard, 9 February 2008
