Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Refreshing, mouthwatering and great value dry white Cool Climate Sauvignon Blanc. This vintage will accompany the heat of patio season with refreshment sip after sip. Crowd pleaser. Ideal recommendation for garden parties and wedding planners. Quality at an accessible price. Tasted Mar 2017. Rated 88/100.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Clean and crisp! Lacking a bit of character fo my taste but a thirst quencher nonetheless. Top flavours include crisp and tangy citrus, green pineapple, and mineral notes. Share with friends on a hot patio. Summer is calling! Tasted Feb 2017 - by @sommsosa | co-owner of bespoketastings.ca
