"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."

Pioneer Block

Pioneer Block 12 Lone Gum Gewurztraminer

The fruit was sourced from the Lone Gum vineyard in the Dog Point region in the lower Omaka Valley directly west of Blenheim. There is a lone gum tree that sits in the middle of the vineyard which is lit up at night. This has been the subject matter of photos by local photographer Kevin Judd.

The 2008 vintage of this wine has won top international trophies including the following at the Decanter International Wine Awards 2009.
