Sauvignon Blanc Trophy & Gold Medal
95 points - Saint Clair Barrique Sauvignon Blanc 2016
“With beautiful richness and weight to the palate, this shows sweet apples and pears, plus hints of sweet spice and nuts. Beautiful toasty and mealy characters add richness, but there is also freshness throughout the long, complex and textured finish.”
95 points - Berton Vineyard, Reserve, Barossa, Shiraz 2017
“This is a very complex wine, with an aromatic nose displaying savoury spices, rich dark fruit notes including blackberries and ripe plums, a touch of ripe bell pepper and a bit of tar and white pepper powder. The palate has a rich fruity start. It is a medium-bodied wine with a great deal of balance and attractive grainy tannins. Developed spicy notes return on the finish.”
90 points - Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2018
