Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A zesty Sauvignon Blanc wine overseen by Badel and made at the Daruvar Winery in Slavonia, Continental Croatia. "Vezak" was recently added to their labels in 2017. These Sauvignon Blanc grapes have an abundance of minerality and zesty tropical fruit, refreshingly integrated with soft, delicate elements of pear, lime citrus and melon. Brisk refreshing medium acidity balances well against the matching body. This is an excellent wine to accompany light cheeses, olive tapenades and pesto sauces.

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.
