Saint Clair Other Varieties

Saint Clair produce a range of wine varieties and styles at various price points.

Most of Marlborough’s production is indeed Sauvignon Blanc and Saint Clair Family Estate is traditionally recognised for this flagship varietal. However, Saint Clair have received a increasingly large amounts of awards for other varietal throughout their portfolio leaving to further recognition as a leading New Zealand winery. Being recognised in the international wine shows for these non-mainstream varieties is recognition of quality and a tribute to the dedicated team working collectives to produce wines that will exceed customers’ expectations.

Open-minded approach to excellence within the vineyard, the winery and across all facets of the business is imperative to achieving the desired quality.

Varietals include Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Rosé, Syrah, viognier. The winemaking team will explore many opportunities so there could very well be more to enter the portfolio in the future.
