Saint Clair Family Estate Collects Bags Of Gold

The New Zealand International Wine Show is the largest and one of the most highly regarded international wine competitions held in New Zealand each year. This year reflected an exceptional quality standard, with 68% of all wines entered receiving an award.

Saint Clair Family Estate is thrilled to announce the exceptional achievement of nine gold medals. Among the large collection of gold, four gold medals were awarded to Saint Clair’s flagship varietal Sauvignon Blanc. The iconic Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2010 was true to its gold medal standard, with the other three going to the newly released 2011 vintage.

GOLD - Saint Clair Marlborough Premium Sauvignon Blanc 2011
GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 18 Snap Block Sauvignon Blanc 2011
GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 21 Bell Block Sauvignon Blanc 2011
GOLD – Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Other top performing varietals from the family-owned Marlborough winery were Chardonnay and Pinot Noir:

GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 10 Twin Hills Marlborough Chardonnay 2010
GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 11 Cell Block Chardonnay 2010

GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 12 Lone Gum Pinot Noir 2010
GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 16 Awatere Pinot Noir 2010
GOLD - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 22 Barn Block Pinot Noir 2010

Saint Clair owners Neal and Judy are thrilled with this recent recognition, commenting: “The outstanding results are attributed to our unique quality assessment system, which has identified superior sub-regions of Marlborough. This, combined with a strong team approach and an open-minded viticulture approach, has lead Saint Clair Family Estate to become one of New Zealand’s most awarded wineries.”

The result reflects Saint Clair’s outstanding quality from a number of Marlborough vineyard sites across various varietals that are able to produce gold medal wines, and further cements their reputation as a leading New Zealand wine producer.
