    It feels good to be number one baby!

    No.1 Sauvignon in Cuisine magazine 2019.
    No.1 Sauvignon Blanc at the NZ Int’l Wine Show 2019.

    Pioneer Block 1 sure is living up to its name. Named the Pioneer Block as this was the original vineyard that Saint Clair identified fruit for their now legendary Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvy.

    As if taking out 5 Stars & No.1 Spot in Cuisine, a Trophy and two Gold medals wasn’t enough to tempt you. How about what Master of Wine Bob Campbell had to say on the matter?

    “Saint Clair now makes the country’s and perhaps the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc.”

    This single vineyard wine is made from fruit in the Lower Wairau Valley there in Marlborough. This is punchy, weighty, herbacious, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at its world class best. The kind of wine your mates on the other side of the world would be tripping over themselves to get a bottle of. A wine worth every penny and then some at this price.
