"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

Accolades

"Yet another very good wine, with lovely lifted, perfumed, gooseberry aromas. Excellent length of fruit flavours on a long, seamlessly balanced palate with a grainy texture and great zingy finish."
Winestate Annual Edition, 2009
