Natalie's Score: 87/100
A zesty, vibrant white wine with come-alive aromas of grapefruit and lime. Great as an aperitif or pair it with shellfish or chevre.
Great Goat Cheese Wine

|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
August 17, 2014: Pale straw, nose is a little muted but still showing some herbaceousness and passion fruit. Mouthwatering, with a kiss of sweetness under the acidity, passion fruit and apple make on appearance on the palate. The finish is a little short. A pleasant wine for the patio with some appetizers.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
A fairl closed wine for a Sauvignon Blanc, with subtle aromas of white melon and lemon. The taste is more pineaple and lime, with good acidity.

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon yellow. Softer lemon and some herbaceous notes on the nose and the palate. Fresh and slightly grassy, not as tart as expected. Finish is a bit short.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:|
Pretty closed wine. Applesauce and straw. Pear and apple on the palate. Very light.
|Shelley Harris rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:|
A pale yellow wine with fruity aroma and melon overtones on the palate. Would complement well a meal of grilled salmon.
|Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:|
Pleasant, moderately intense citrus with a hint of herbaceous character and minerality on the nose. Well balanced, lively acidity. Light to medium bodied. Herbaceous character comes out a little too strongly in the finish, overtaking the citrus flavours.
|An enjoyable, wine with bright, refreshing fruit character.|
Grapes are sourced primarily from the Central Coast and Lodi.
A long, cool fermentation focused the fruit and retained the crisp acids.
The mild, even growing season of 2012 produced excellent fruit quality.
