22nd November 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Saint Clair’s Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2021 has won the Champion Wine title at the 2021 Marlborough Wine Show.

Of the 18 trophies awarded, seven went to wines produced this year, including Stoneleigh Latitude Pinot Gris, Wairau River Estate Summer Riesling, Wairau River Reserve Grüner Veltliner, Riverby Estate Rosé and Brancott Estate Reserve Sauvignon Blanc.

“The 2021 and 2020 wines were stunning,” said chief judge Ben Glover.

“All the judges thought it was one of the best lineups they have seen. It was an exceptional show to judge. The Pinots out of 2020 were just beautiful and the 2021 Sauvignon Blancs were out of this world.”
