Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lemongrass, lime, herbs, and flinty minerality on the nose and palate. A yummy Sauvignon Blanc that pairs great with grilled veggies, spicy Asian dishes, especially green coconut curry. Yum! Tasted July 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
The 2013 vintage of the Creekside Sauvignon Blanc sources grapes grown behind the winery, thus the name Backyard. Pair with seafood. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
