rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

OK, was kinda disappointed here ... found another Sauvignon Blanc under $10 at the LCBO ... the aroma was nice and so I had a sip with great anticipation and I was disappointed. It was pale and very light (both in the citrus on the nose and the palate) and I guess would make a nice outdoors "sipper" on a hot afternoon but certainly not "alive" like most of the other Sauvignon's I've enjoyed over the years.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Playful lemon grass and gooseberry aromas layered with hints of honeysuckle and tangerine on the palate with a citrus fruit finish of vibrant crispness.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Arômes agréables de citronnelle et de groseilles avec des couches de notes de bruycre et de tangerine au palais et un fini vif d’agrumes.

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.
