|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Bright pale yellow in the glass, tropical notes on the nose that transform into a lingering citrus finish.
Tasted Nov 2016.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Not your typical Sauvignon Blanc. Tropical aromas of banana, melon and peach with a smooth mouthfeel. Medium acidity that is short lived. Serve as an apertif.
Tasted November 29, 2016.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Tropical aromas are first out of the glass and the palate has those green or herbaceous flavours and a bit of a smokey finish. Light-bodied and short.
|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:|
While the label may say Sauvignon Blanc (blended with Vilana, a varietal rarely seen outside of Crete), you're in for a disappointment if you're expecting a crisp and fresh wine that generally typifies the varietal.
This wine comes through on the nose with some very pleasant tropical fruit, and little of the herbaceous aromas associated with Sauvignon Blanc. Its light gold colour also points to a different kind of wine.
On the palate, the lack of acidity is what struck me the most. I served this with sushi, and was hoping for a good level of acidity (It does say Sauvignon Blanc on the bottle!), which is not there, even served well-chilled. The floral and tropical fruit flavours are nice, but there is nothing there to support them. The wine seems "flat", perhaps like a bottle of Australian Viognier that's been left open in the refrigerator for a few days. Finish is short and unremarkable.
We stopped after a glass each; I'll use the rest for cooking. There are far better whites, even at this price point. Tasted March 2017.
