100 BEST WINES OF THE YEAR - No.92 - Saint Clair 2009 Marlborough Pioneer Block 6 Oh! Block Sauvignon Blanc - Wine & Spirits Magazine USA Nov 2011 Annual Buying Guide
90 POINTS. Of all this year's seven Pioneer Block Sauvignon Blanc offerings, this one most seamlessly blends passion fruit, green tomatoes and leafy notes into a medium-bodied yet amply concentrated wine with a long, citrusy finish. —J.C. Wine Enthusiast USA (Sept Issue 2010)

“The floral, almost sweet aromas lead to a fresh and lively palate of passionfruit and melon that is joined to a soft acidity. Well balanced with good length.”, 29 September 2009
