Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great value here in this Colombard, Gros Manseng and Ugni Blanc blend that may be somewhat unfamiliar to many of us. Aromatic notes of somewhat steely, smoky grapefruit. Citrus defines the palate with some minerality in play. Nicely balanced and structured. Serve with lemon chicken or pasta primavera. Excellent value. Tasted Dec 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great price point for this lovely blend. Comprised of 60% Colombard, 30% Gros Manseng, and 10% Ungi Blanc, this wine has aromas of lemon, lime zest, white florals, and a slight hint of saline. Zesty and vibrant on the palate, this would be perfect with any fresh seafood.
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A blend of grapes mainly grown in South West France, this is an extra dry white wine that has fresh floral and citrus aromas. Tropical fruit on the palate is driven by the acidity that leads to a very dry finish. Fish, seafood, even pickled vegetables would match this wine.
I love this blend of Colombard, Gros Manseng and Ugni Blanc. It's a perfect three-way marriage. Look for binned apple, tropical fruit and citrus-crisp mineral flavours finishing long and juicy on the palate. So good now. Enjoy with grilled or fresh seafood dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
