Karen Anderson rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

This wine speaks to me of spring and summer. My nose gets first blush apricots all the way through to summer peaches. On the palate the finish has a surprising pineapple hit. When people say they like crisp wine, I think of this one.
Its a good "house white" and is fun for parties as it will appeal to many.
I'd like to go to New Zealand's Marlborough region to see the soil that delivers such fine sauvignon grapes.
Food: It went wonderfully with the spring pea and grilled shrimp risotto I made this evening.
I hope to drink this steadily till the day I die. I'll only lay it down when I finally lie down for good!

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
