5 Stars & Number 2 Cuisine Sauvignon Blanc Tasting, December 2020


The Saint Clair ‘Wairau Reserve’ Sauvignon Blanc is Saint Clair’s flagship wine and is long considered one of the very best Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. There's no doubting the Saint Clair style here, it's pungent and intense, oh so generous in aroma and flavour yet it has a refinement, an elegance from the slightly saline mineral characters that help drive the incredible length.


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Exceptionally expressive and intense aromas with an infusion of ripe passionfruit, blackcurrant leaf and crushed fresh thyme. The palate is opulent and complex with concentrated layers of bright citrus and tropical fruit. The palate is crisp and full, with a salty mineral texture and a lingering finish."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Intense and strongly varietal sauvignon blanc with tree fruit, nectarine, citrus, lime, passionfruit, guava, capsicum and an attractive saline influence. A rich, seamless wine that consistently earns well-deserved top scores."


5 Stars & Number 2 Cuisine Sauvignon Blanc Tasting, December 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"Freshly cut limes, a dash of mint and a pinch of tomato leaf develop through the nose conjuring up visions of country roads lined with white clover. Thirst-quenching jucidity – a word Ben Glover has created to describe the heavenly cocktail of acid and juiciness – is omnipresent in this wine complete with balance, length and power."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Marlborough's largest family-owned wine producer has an extensive array of Sauvignon Blancs. This is not the region's most complex Savvy, but in terms of sheer pungency, it's a star, having won countless gold medals and trophies since the first, 2001 vintage. Grown in the cooler, coastal end of the Wairau Valley and handled entirely in stainless steel tanks, it is typically super-charged, in an exuberantly fruity, very pure and zesty style. The 2018 vintage is a single-vineyard wine, grown at Dillons Point. It has fresh, strong, herbaceous aromas and flavours, with pure, penetrating grapefruit and green-capsicum notes, a minerally streak and a long, dry (2.3 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish."


96/100 IWC 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Some steely, passion fruit, lemon, verbena and spring pea. Spicy and zesty on the end."


18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, February 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"This is the top Sauvignon Blanc of Saint Clair Wines in Marlborough and it’s easy to taste that high quality in every fresh and flinty sip. Complex savoury flavours rein in the intense tastes of tropical fruit. It has a medium body and high but balanced acidity, which adds a long, refreshing, zingy finish. It’s easy to taste Marlborough’s hot summer days and cool nights in every glass of this vibrant white."

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
