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.

Filled with aromas and flavors of passion fruit, gooseberries and a touch of grassiness, this is a readily accessible Sauvignon Blanc that might lack a little complexity and richness, but is assertively flavored and goes down easily. —J.C. Wine Enthusiast (Sept Issue 2010)
