Reviews and Ratings

Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Grassy and tart gooseberry on the nose with a hint of florals, light and fresh, dry with balanced acidity and a Savory note. Lurton may be a huge cooperative, but they do a great job. Good value, perfectly good quaffer or aperitif wine.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh and bright, zesty lime and also a hint of floral on nose. Lemon and lime flavours are prominent, green but not too grassy. Nice and balanced acidity. Shows a bit of softness compared to some other Sauvignon Blanc. Try this with some fresh spring vegetables.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lemon, pear, and gooseberry, minerality as well as a very slight creamy aspect. The taste is lemon and pear, with a medium finish.
Philippe Perreault - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Clear yellow color with notes of kiwi, orange peel, pear, grapefruit and mandarine.

This wine is edgy, creamy and long on the palate.

Try it with a pork tenderloin.

Serve it at 10-12 degrees.

Ready to drink but can be aged 3-5 years.

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