Triple Trophy Win for Saint Clair Family Estate

Saint Clair Family Estate are proud to announce outstanding trophy success. The Winestate official awards presentation was held in Queenstown yesterday and the family owned Marlborough winery was awarded the New Zealand Winery of the Year trophy, as well as Winemaker of the Year trophy (Hamish Clark). This is the fourth time that Saint Clair have been awarded the New Zealand Winery of the Year trophy with Winestate (2017, 2014, 2011, 2010) and the third year Hamish has won Winemaker of the Year (2017, 2014, 2012). This continued consistent success for the company reflects the commitment to quality across all facets of their business.

Hamish has been working for Saint Clair for more than 15 years. He is Senior Winemaker and is an integral part of the Saint Clair’s success. Hamish comments; “It was a thrill to be at the prestigious awards presentation where we were awarded these two trophies. We have a great team of people with an open-minded philosophy towards quality from the vineyards, to the wine, to the markets. I was honored to accept the awards on the behalf of the team.”

The Saint Clair Pioneer Block 17 Merlot 2016 was also judged as a Top 5 finalist in its category for these Winestate awards. Sourced from a single vineyard within the Gimblett Gravels winegrowing area of Hawke’s Bay this wine is rich, full bodied and concentrated.

Another trophy for Saint Clair, was announced earlier this week at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show for the Pioneer Block 5 Gruner Veltliner 2015 – Best New Zealand Wine of the Show. This trophy, which was awarded for the best of the wines that fall outside of the mainstream, further cements Saint Clair’s reputation as a leading New Zealand wine producer.

About us

Company details

Saint Clair Family Estate is owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, viticulture pioneers in Marlborough since 1978. Grapes were originally supplied to local wine companies; however a desire to extend the quality achieved in the vineyard through to the finished wine led to the establishment of Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994.

The Saint Clair name originates from the vineyard property, first settled by the Sinclair family. Pioneer James Sinclair built one of the first homes in Blenheim and was closely associated with the early development of the town. Over time the name of the property reverted to the original Saint Clair.

The company's mission is to create world-class wines that exceed their customers' every expectation. Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive viticultural expertise plus Marlborough’s mix of climate and soils with the talent of one of New Zealand’s leading winemaking teams.

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 New World Producer of the Year at the Sommelier Wine Awards UK 2017 and 2012, Vienna International Wine Challenge New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year 2016, 2015, 2013 and 2012 and a listing in the Top 10 Chardonnays of the Year 2016 with Saint Clair Pioneer Block 11 Cell Block Chardonnay 2014 (Chardonnay du Monde).
