Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Grapes from Naramata bench. Stainless steel fermentation. The final blend contained Sauvignon blanc, Muscat Cannoli, Viognier, Chard and Semillon. Fruity peach and floral aroma. On the palate a complex blend of white peach, green apple and mandarin orange with a deliciously creamy finish that lingers.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Yummy off-dry, summer sipper. Wonderful crowd pleasing appeal. Great value as well. Canned mandarin orange, ripe pineapple, blood orange, rose petal. A unique and wonderful blend. This will be a hit with lovers of Moscato Dasti looking for a solid, complex non-bubbly version with a slight herbaceous note. Tasted May 2017. 91 points. BespokeTastings
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A delicious bouquet of sweet yellow apple, apricot, honeydew melon, and floral blossoms greets the nose. The palates offers moderate acidity with a creamy texture. The finish is both crisp and sweet with creamy baked orchard fruits and a mineral driven lime finish. Enjoy with grilled lemon asparagus chicken. Tasted May 2017. 88 points.
