Neal Ibbotson, managing director, said that the win was overwhelming. “It’s great to be recognised internationally at a highly acclaimed and influential wine competition such as IWC for our flagship wine. We are fortunate to have exceptional selected vineyard sites and a great team of highly skilled people creating a wine that can claim to be the best of its variety in the world.’
Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is Saint Clair’s flagship wine, created using an open-minded viticulture approach and unique stringent wine quality assessment.
This is not the wines first wine. Saint Clair has previously taken home IWC trophies in 2008, 2007, 2005 and 2003.
