Natalie's Score: 89/100

Very nice! Fat, luscious aromas and flavours of melon. Not herbal (thank-you). I like it a lot, and the price even better. Bring on summer, bring on refreshment.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: lean, white-fleshed fish with mild flavours, oysters, fresh green salads, goats milk cheeses and chicken pates.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

With fresh pink grapefruit aromas this is one of the best Canadian Sauvignon Blanc's I have tasted. The mild acidity and ripe long lasting fruit flavours make it very enjoyable. I tried it with poached sea bass in a lemon and ginger sauce, for a tangy yet smooth pairing.
A grapefruit edge, the fruit sensations lasting well into the finish before flinty mineral characteristics dominate. Will age 3-5 years but becoming more mineral-like after the first 1-2 years.
Made from fruit sourced from Short Hills and Twenty Mile Bench vineyard locations.
Harvest Date: September 18th, 23rd, & 26th, 2011
Yields of 3 to 4 Tonnes /acre (~50-70 hL/ha)
Fermentation in stainless steel at cool temperatures yields a wine with oodles of aromatic fruit.

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.
