Aimee Fowler WSET L2 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This is not a Sauvignon Blanc that many have come to expect. This is less fruit forward and much more mineral focused. You can smell the limestone on the nose, stone fruit, yellow delicious apples and poached lemon. When first tasted the stone fruit and limoncello flavours pull through first, followed by the mineral limestone and bruised apple. It is off-dry, which lessens the potency of the acidity as it courses through the palate. Not overly long lasting in flavour, but a great sipping wine, and excellent for a light pasta/chicken dish.
Carla Johnson rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Delightfully tart, yet sweet.

Winemaker notes:
The nose is crisp but smooth, with notes of honeysuckle. Light and delicate with subtle herbaceous hints, gooseberry and pear prevail. Limited aging in oak barrels provides a vanilla smooth, mouth filling finish that works all the senses.

Food pairings: Grilled seafood, chicken or pasta with a light cream sauce and light cheeses.

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.
