Reviews and Ratings

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Crisp and refreshing with a youthful pale greenish-yellow colour. The aromas of gooseberry and lime dominate the nose, while more muted vegetal aromas add complexity and depth. A long finish that is clean and persistent.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Vif et rafraîchissant d’une couleur jaune verdâtre jeune. Les arômes de groseilles et de lime dominent le nez, avec des arômes végétaux plus dissimulés qui ajoutent de la complexité et de la profondeur. Un fini long qui est net et persistant.

This fresh and lively Sauvignon Blanc is a pale greenish-yellow in color. It is young,
intense, and vibrant, with aromas of gooseberry and lime that predominate on the
nose, while more subtle green aromas of bell peppers and asparagus lend complexity and depth. This wine has a long, clean, and persistent finish with just the right acidity for a fresh and refreshing wine.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
