Natalie's Score: 88/100
A zesty bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc from Creek Shores, Niagara Peninsula wine region. Have always loved the nose on this wine; the lemongrass, lime and green herbs are fresh and forward and this SB is intense and vibrant with apple, citrus, grapefruit and soft grassy flavours on the palate. Pair with a tuna ceviche. Wine grapes were cool-fermented to preserve the freshness.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: chicken and sage skewers, fresh tomato and basil salad, oysters on the half shell, pan-fried freshwater fish.
Sensational Shellfish Wine

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Sauvignon Blanc can be a harder grape to suss out the details of in a context with Niagara.
Not only are a lot of Sauvignon Blancs on the market today made with thiolic yeasts that mask a lot of their terroir, but a broad spectrum of climatic differences and winemaking preferences make them highly variable.
Niagara Savvy tends towards austerity, with well preserved ones having great herbaceous crunchiness and some nice stone fruit and citrus.
Creekside make some pretty cool Sauv from their Backyard Block. This is the still version, though they also do a sparkling charmat Savvy.
Theirs combines the intense tropicality of thioly Sauv with some of the soft nectarine and herbaceousness previously described.
It has a well made balance of flavour, acidity, and skin contact (making it crisp and colourful).
The flavours have a lot of lime, passion fruit, nectarine, and lime rind.
Ot is a tasty choice to have with calamari and a cobb salad.
Drink soon, though! It is best when at its freshest.
|Creekside Backyard Block 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is fragrant with fresh cut grass, lemongrass, lemon and lime zest aromas on the nose. Dry, zesty with more lemongrass, gooseberry, fresh apple and zesty citrus flavours on the palate with a flinty mineral finish. From Creek Shores, Niagara Peninsula wine region, the SB wine grapes are grown behind the winery, thus the name "Backyard". - Community Wine Reviews|
