A crisp bright Sauvignon Blanc semillon blend weighing in at 12.2% ABV. Pale straw. Medium bodied and well balanced. Pairs well with baked haddock filet and summer salads. Tasted May 2017. 89 points. BespokeTastings
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh easy drinking B.C. take in the ever-so-tasty White Bordeaux Sauv. Bl-Semillion blend. Dry, crisp, light-bodied with flavourful notes of green pineapple, citrus, and lemongrass. Enjoy with lemon-pepper chicken skewers. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.a
Dean Engemoen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pineapple, lemon rind, tropical fruit and grassy notes on the nose. There is just a hint of spice that shows through, joining the tropical fruit and lemon. Still very young but showing a ton of promise.
