    It feels good to be number one baby – again! For two years running this wine was voted 5 Stars & No.1 NZ Sauvignon Blanc by Cuisine magazine judges. As one judge quite simply put it – “This is the quality of Marlborough sauvignon blanc the world needs to see.”

    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.

    The Cuisine judges were simply blown away by this, and there’s absolutely no doubt you will too. “With wonderful savouriness, a dry, citrus-quenching, refreshing mouthful that lingers with remarkable tension and pop. This sauvignon quite simply has it all. Truly, the best of 2020.”

    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.
