Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Imagine yourself picking sweet young peas off the vine on a Spring morning...then you fall down laughing with joy because, well, it's Spring and these just taste sooo good! Floral notes and crisp acidity makes this a party in a glass!
Then there's the price-$13.95...laughing!
Mario Cagnetta rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Are you eating calamari or maybe mussels with garlic and lime? Here is the sparkling wine for you. Kiwi Walk sparkling Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand is the perfect companion for this type of food. The bubbles will cut the greasiness of the oil and the typical notes of guava and lime are matching perfectly if you you drizzle some lemon on top of seafood. This wine is the traditional expression of Marlborough’s land where Sauvignon is the most important grape. Made from grapes selected from different blocks and fermented separately, Kiwi Walk is highly recommended with tapas during the classic aperitif with friends. The freshness and the acidity are very well balanced by the fruits: Kiwi Walk is not a sparkling wine that will excel for its complexity but is a good quality Charmat method sparkling wine, very easygoing and very good for many occasions.
Visual examination: brilliant with very bright greenish yellow notes, this wine has a very good effervescence with many large bubbles typical from this kind of method.
Olfactory examination: intense, moderately complex fine in quality, it has herbaceus and fruity notes of lime and guava enhanced by the carbonation.
Taste-olfactory examination: dry, moderately warm and moderately smooth, it is a fresh sparkling wine, intense and moderately persistent in your mouth after taste. Ready to drink, especially now that summer is going to end.

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.
