Reviews and Ratings

Holly Emmerson rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

This crisp white wine is full of tropical fruit and lychee on the nose. Nice soft acids, mango and green melon on the palate. For my full video review, please go to: http://winewithme.ca/the-diary/?category=Sauvignon+Blanc
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

This crisp New Zealand sauvignon blanc is attracted to girlfriend get togethers like Oprah cut-outs are attracted to vision boards. If you want your vision board to look like a Jack Russell terrier pawed it together, choose this terrific too-easy-to-drink wine...
Merilee Lackey rated this wine as 93/100
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is an energetic and delightful Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region. Crisp flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries and citrus wake up your taste buds, making it perfect with nuts or smoked oysters. Buy more than one!

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.
