If you’re a regular reader of New Zealand’s household staple magazine Cuisine you will regularly see Saint Clair in the tasting line up. You could have not missed it in the January 2021 issue with Saint Clair excelling in the tasting with five of the seven 5-star rated Sauvignon Blanc wines.
Cuisine issue number 205 which hit the shelves this month will again showcase wines of excellence from Saint Clair. This time within the Pinot Noir tasting.
Saint Clair Pioneer Block 5 Bull Block Pinot Noir 2019 just missed out on the top number one spot (which was taken by Delta Hatters Hill Pinot Noir 2019) but gained a highly regarded number two place, being awarded the 5-star rating of excellence.
A number of 4-star ratings went to a number of Saint Clair Pinot Noirs across various ranges and price points:
Saint Clair Pioneer Block 22 Barn Block Pinot Noir 2019 4-Stars
Saint Clair James Sinclair Pinot Noir 2019 4-Stars
Saint Clair Pioneer Block 10 Twin Hills Pinot Noir 2019 4-Stars
Saint Clair Origin Pinot Noir 2019 4-Stars (BEST BUY)
Notable rating of ‘Best Buy’ to the Saint Clair Origin Pinot Noir 2019. Only the wines that offer an outstanding mix of quality and price are awarded Best Buy status. Consumers purchasing wines rated as Best Buy can be assured, they’re getting a great wine at an excellent price.
The Saint Clair Origin Pinot Noir is readily available throughout New Zealand as well as exported globally. The wine over-delivers on quality and is of outstanding value for money.
Results like this clearly illustrate that Saint Clair Family Estate is not only a specialist Sauvignon Blanc producer. The family-owned Marlborough winery also excels in its production of Pinot Noir.
