|Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon colour with a watery rim. Passion fruit, ruby grapefruit, fresh fig and tangerine on the nose. A fruity Sauvignon blanc that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Perfect to pair with seafood or to drink on its own.
|Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Nose: Lemon-limey Sprite-like aromas, honeydew melon, fresh cut grass
Palate: Mouthpickering citrus as mentioned above, flinty mineral notes, light bodied, refreshing
Perfect holiday wine to accompany some intro dishes like salads, tangy goat cheeses, simple no-meat creamy pasta dishes or even on its own as a palate cleanser in between dishes
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
an interesting sauv blanc from south africa. Tropical fruits and peachy flavors on the palate, a hint of grassy note on the nose. For a suav blanc, it's a bit fruity and not acidic enough. But if you want to learn about sauv blanc, this is a good starting point and at a good price!
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon-green colour. Aromas of golden apples, ripe pear, green beans and lots of floral notes. On the palate - pear, dried apricot, quite fruity. Guava and a touch of honeydew. Medium minus acidity, light body and finish. Light and refreshing. Pair with light seafood and salads.
86 points November 2017

|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Very pale straw in colour with aromas of lemon, pear and apple with flavours of ripe pear, red apple and peach. It is light bodied with medium-low acidity and has a short finish. This will pair with soft cheeses and green salads. Tasted on November 19, 2017.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:|
A big, brazen white.…
Presentation: Distinct, busy, over-the-top, just like the name of the wine
Appearance: Pale lemon
Nose: Pronounced nose, with notes of tropical fruit (lychee, bananas), with an undercurrent of the classic asparagus smell
Taste: Dry to off-dry, full body, medium-to-high acidity, low tannins, with notes of asparagus, tropical fruit (pineapple, lychee, bananas), citrus rind, with some mineral and herbaceous notes
Finish: long on the tropical fruit
Overall impression: A big, brazen white, with a blend of tropical fruit and the characteristic asparagus. If you like New World wines, you should like this, especially if you like the sharp back-end of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine fits the label and name.
