Saint Clair Triumphs at Sydney International Wine Competition
Congratulations to Saint Clair Estate for winning yet more silverware, this time at the Sydney International Wine Competition, where the Marlborough winery collected a number of trophies.
The family-owned estate has achieved remarkable recognition by winning four trophies, including Best Sauvignon Blanc of the Competition and Non-Australian Wine of Outstanding Quality.
“Ater returning from the Air New Zealand Wine Awards last weekend with trophies for both Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, the additional variety trophies here, including Syrah and Riesling, comes as a complete thrill, illustrating we can produce quality wine across a range of styles and varietals,” says Neal Ibbotson, Saint Clair’s Managing Director.
The four trophies were awarded for the following wines:
- Saint Clair Pioneer Block 3, 43 Degrees Sauvignon Blanc 2014 – Best Sauvignon Blanc of the Competition
- Saint Clair Pioneer Block 17 Plateau Syrah 2013 – Non-Australian Wine of Outstanding Quality
- Saint Clair Awatere Valley Reserve Noble Riesling 2013 – Best Dessert Wine (Unfortified) of the Competition
- Saint Clair Family Estate – The Wine Society (Australia) Perpetual trophy for the Most Successful Winery of Competition (Joint winners with Cellar Masters, South Australia)
“Being awarded the Most Successful Winery of the Competition trophy, for the consecutive year, is attributable to the huge emphasis on quality that our team has across all aspects of our wine business,” adds Ibbotson.
