Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Malcolm Lamont rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Pale in colour, as is true to the style, notes of gooseberry, herbs, minerality, and lovely tropical fruit notes of mango, papaya and melon. Soft flavours that are very well balanced and rounded, and showing bright fruit notes. Tasted September 26, 2013
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Great deal for the price! The winemaker strived to make a wine that was true to character with this Sauv Blanc, creating a crisp and refreshing wine with an intense fruity and herbaceous aroma. Grown in a dry environment where vine roots have dug down deep to reach schist soil which provides intensified aromas and flavours as well as minerality. 2012 was a hot vintage, so grapes were harvested early in the season to retain acidity. Pale yellow, with intense aromas of Gooseberry, green herb, lime, and pineapple. Palate adds minerality and grapefruit. Very refreshing and a clean finish.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: High acidity, crisp and refreshing. Lovely notes of mineral and grass.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review: This crisp, intense, nervy Sauvignon Blanc has an herbacious nose with citrus lime and fruity notes, repeated on the palate. High acidity.very refreshing.
This season varied from the previous one by having higher average low and high temperatures in February and March as well as lower precipitation from October through April and an absence of frost, which together resulted in healthy grapes. Source: Agent (Philippe Dandurand Wines Ltd.)
