Reviews and Ratings

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Light and lithe, fresh and simple, but not simplistic. Pretty lime, lemon and grapefruit pith aromas and flavours with an attractive bitter almond note and a dry, mineral-and-lime, lingering finish. I hear a seafood salad calling...
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Delicate aromas of fresh herbs, hay and citrus with a clean, crisp palate of apple and white grapefruit. Mouth-watering acidity makes this a sure match for shellfish.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a very pretty Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of lemon, fresh cut grass and minerality. Refreshing and elegant with citrusy lemon on the finish. Excellent pairing with mixed greens & goat cheese salad or shellfish. Tasted Sept. 2016.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A fresh Sauvignon Blanc with loads of minerality on the nose. The palate is crisp, lemony and mild grassy notes. Enjoy this light bodied easy sipping white wine with summer salads. The high acidity in the wine would also compliment creamy based sauces as well. Tasted Sept 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
This is a great value Sauvignon Blanc with tropical fruit notes and cut grass from France's warmer Midi wine region. - Community Wine Reviews
