For the second year in a row, Saint Clair Family Estate dominate New Zealand’s iconic wine and food lover’s magazine with their line-up of wines dominating the Sauvignon Blanc tasting pages.
The magazine that is a household staple trusted by an audience of over 280,000 is filled with informative and innovative content, from hot new ingredients to seasonal feasts and decadent desserts along with what is new and exciting in the restaurant world and of course the very best wines to buy.
Issue number 203 January 2021 hitting the shelves today contains an in-depth review of some of New Zealand’s finest Sauvignon Blanc wines. The highly competitive Sauvignon Blanc tasting boasted an astounding 142 entries. The Cuisine panel awarded only seven wines the highly acclaimed 5-Star rating. Five of these seven wines rated 5-Stars are from family-owned Marlborough winery Saint Clair Family Estate. This is a replication of the tasting that took part at the same time last year where again Saint Clair had five Sauvignon Blanc’s receiving 5-Star rating. It is most unlikely any other winery has ever achieved such ratings two years in a row!
Neal Ibbotson (Managing Director) comments, “It is part of Saint Clair’s mission to produce the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc and therefore to receive recognition such as this by a panel of wine experts is an outstanding achievement for our team. We are fortunate to have some of the best vineyard sites in Marlborough (possibly the world) for the production of top-quality Sauvignon Blanc. This combined with the efforts of a highly skilled team has enabled us to be on the journey to achieve our mission to produce some of New Zealand’s finest Sauvignon Blanc.”
Results like this clearly distinguish Saint Clair Family Estate as one of New Zealand’s leading Sauvignon Blanc producers. If you’ve not yet purchased this newly released Cuisine magazine, treat yourself, and learn some more about some of the best Sauvignon Blanc around.
