Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Bordeaux Sauvignon has a lovely inviting nose of melon, green apple, and a touch of lemon with floral/herbal hints. The palate shows apple, lemon and grassy/herbal notes. Smooth, crisp, dry and harmonious with a long citrus/apple finish.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A stunning effort for the price. This wine features aromas and flavours of cirtus, pyrazine, green berries, and fresh cut grass. Pair with Asian-inspired carrot soup. 89 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
This zesty, acidic Bordeaux white wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes. Finishes with gooseberry and grassy aromas. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
