Reviews and Ratings

Miriam Borys rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Crisp, Light, Delicious and terrifically tasty when ice cold.
Goes well with my Chicken Cordon Bleu... please go to my blog for a complete recipe www.cookinguncovered.blogspot.com or to my YouTube video
Jessica rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals were drawn to Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc as the monkey on the label bears a striking resemblance to the monkeys in the Barrel of Monkeys game. Although the monkeys in the game have been used to teach biology students about polyhedral structures of viruses and proteins, Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc has limited scientific applications. It is a reasonably-priced alternative to our go-to sauvignon blanc Kim Crawford that makes the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals want to link arms.

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.
