Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bonterra - meaning, “good earth” is reflected in their organic farming practices and the natural care that goes into the making of the wines. Blended berries from three different and distinguishing vineyards located in Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake counties.
This Sauvignon Blanc has a pleasing peachy-green perfume of stone fruit, green mango, fresh sprouted lemon grass and white flowers. Flavours echo this with some key lime citrus, bean sprouts, honeydew and kiwi notes. Light body, short finish with some moderate, mouthwatering acidity. A great accompaniment to mixed green salads and herbed goats cheese. 88 points - tasted March 2019
Bonterra 2017 is a medium bodied, dry and crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Mendocino County in California with herbal, lime/lemon zest and white floral flavours on the palate. Bonterra," means "good earth." and the winery is a leading voice in organic winemaking and farming since 1987. Very nice. Pair with all things seafood. - Community Wine Reviews
