One of the best values for pinot grigio in the liquor store! Fresh, clean and crisp with sunshine bright aromas of lemon zest, lime blossom and white peach. Amazingly great price for this half bottle size. Perfect for nights when you put on comfy jeans and your favourite TV show.

Sandra rated this wine as 89/100
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very refreshing wine, nice crisp citrus taste, with a clean finish. I love Sauvignon Blancs and this is a nice change as it has a fresh taste but not quite as tart. We BBQ'ed and had pork and asparagus for dinner, and this wine matched very nicely with the grilled asparagus.
Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Value, value, value! A Vintages Essentials that delivers predictability. Light, clean, crisp, and refreshing. A great go-to white wine for everyday sipping and easy on all palates. Lemon, lime, floral, sea salt, stones, and minerality.
Perfect for shellfish, pasta with Asiago cream sauce, or my patio chair and a book.
Tasted: October 2014
This is the half-bottle size of our hugely popular Essentials product (106450). Consistently our biggest seller, this customer favourite delivers refreshing green apple, peach and citrus notes. Perfect for sipping on its own. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.
