Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vibrant and invigorating with classic Sauvignon nettle and green citrus. A touch grassy but not overly so. Clean and fresh: a terrific match for vegetarian dishes, including grilled vegetables.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Cantaloupe / honeydew melon / lemon-lime / minerality; the palate has a lovely salty-briney flavour

Greek Salad with Kalamata olives might fall in love with this little number.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Light gold, aromatic, citrus/lemon, dried tropical fruit, minerality with high acid and a lighter herbaceous finish. Highly recommended with veggie dishes- a light stir-fry on the grill perhaps.
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Good example here of Ontario Sauvignon Blanc with aromas and flavours of: lemon-grass, banana, citrus and some floral notes, mouth watering acidity, would go nicely with grilled fish salads.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Herbal and honeydew aromoas with citrus and melon flavors on the palate.
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

June 22, 2014: Pale yellow, honeydew melon, floral/herbal note, fennel, apricot. Light body, this starts with green pear, citrus lemon and leads to a long gooseberry finish. A good choice for green salad with goat cheese, apple and candied pecans.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Refreshing green herbal citrus and slight vegetal aromas, echoed on palate. Mouth-watering acidity.
Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lemon and gooseberry with a touch of straw and green bean. Nice bright acidity without overpowering the taste. Would pair well with green salad.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Very light and refreshing wine. The aromas have a touch of sweetness, with honeydew melon and pear, but the flavor is light and crisp with green apple, plenty of minerality and touch of fresh herb. Would go well with a fresh green salad or grilled asparagus.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Reserved for a Sauvignon Blanc, this wine has aromas and flavours of apple, lemon, chamomile, and a hint of white pepper. Refreshing and simple.
Drink now.
Pair with grilled veggies and summer salads.
Date tasted: June 2014.

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.
