Natalie's Score: 88/100
A bone-dry, single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from Creek Shores wine region with fresh cut grass, lemongrass, lemon and lime zest aromas on the nose. Dry, zesty with more lemongrass, gooseberry, fresh apple and citrus flavours on the palate with a lingering flinty mineral finish.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: chicken and sage skewers, fresh tomato and basil salad, oysters on the half shell, pan-fried freshwater fish.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
One of Creekside Winery’s signature grapes is Sauvignon Blanc, and this is a perfect reflection of the craft that has gone into making this appealing Ontario wine. If you’re a fan of the Savvy’s from New Zealand, look no further than this local treasure! It opens with yellow flowers, tropical fruit and a hint of green pepper and freshly cut grass. Love those pyrazines! Flavours are dry and mouthwatering with pink grapefruit citrus, pineapple, green apples and kiwi. Brilliant, zesty acidity alongside a crisp light finish. Staying true to its name, this was paired with being in the backyard, socially-distanced from the neighbours around the block, cheers-ing. ;) Tasted October 2020

This wine reminds me of summer, even though winter has just started. Aromas of fresh grass, lime and a hint of tinned peas. Dry, with bright, mouthwatering acidity, and smooth texture, with flavours of grapefruit, lime and green herbs bouncing off my palate. Enjoy this white fish or any fresh green summery vegetable dishes.
|From Creek Shores, Niagara Peninsula wine region, Creekside Backyard Block 2019 is a cool-climate, single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc that is as juicy on the nose as it is on the palate. Love the lemongrass, lime and fresh green herb aromas, mouth-watering and finishing silky smooth with grapefruit and grassy notes on the palate. Pair with a tuna ceviche. - Community Wine Reviews|
