Food Pairings for Saint Clair Pioneer Block 18 Wairau Sauvignon Blanc
From 1994 when wines from the first vintage all won medals including gold, the name Saint Clair has been synonymous with quality and its award-winning record continues today. Top International accolades include the trophy to Saint Clair/Matt Thomson for White Winemaker of the Year at the London International Wine Challenge, September 2008 and the coveted trophy for Best New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2005. Saint Clair Family Estate also has the distinction of being the first New Zealand wine company to win major international trophies for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the same year. Block 18 Snap Block is an intensely concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with fresh passionfruit and blackcurrant, with a salty minerality that leads to a lingering finish. On the nose it shows powerful passionfruit, grapefruit and lifted notes of blackcurrant. It is an ideal match with lightly spiced Thai cuisine or grilled Marlborough salmon with char-grilled vegetables.
