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.

Accolades

"Versatile, smart Marlborough producer delivering excellent value, well-crafted wines. Medium-bodied with soft texture. Crushed rose petals, lychees and Turkish delight."
Weekend Herald, Canvas Section, 1 August 2009


“Pretty rather than powerful, with soft florals on the nose and gently spiced white-stonefruit flavours in the mouth. It’s a dry wine, but there is a slight sweetness in the long and delicate finish.”
The Christchurch Press, 16 September 2009
