The 2010 Pinot Noirs were outstanding with Saint Clair leading the way with no less than 4 Top Tip Awards. .....All of the Saint Clair Top Tip winners came from their Pioneer Block range and we would suggest that you can't go wrong with any wine from this range but that our favourite was Block 16 Awatere Pinot Noir.

Pioneer Block


Pioneer Block 9 Big John Riesling

Grapes from a site in the lower Brancott Valley were specifically chosen for Pioneer Block 9 wines due to the evenness of the soils and the age of the vines.

These wines are made in a Germanic Spatlese style, with the natural residual grape sugar balanced by firm acidity creating an off-dry impression.

The name of this vineyard reflects its 6ft 10in owner, John Walsh, affectionately known in viticultural circles as Big John. He and his wife Lynne are Saint Clair’s major grape growers.
