Reviews and Ratings

Lesley Quinn - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

While the nose displays a typical Sauvignon Blanc with bright tangy notes of green grass and gooseberries. On the palate it is surprisingly demur due to spending a little time in French Oak. Far from the normal zesty Sauvignon Blancs we are used to seeing. Mission Hill offers an alternative more delicate Sauvignon Blanc with just a hint of pink grapefruit. Try it with Halibut in a Lemon Caper Cream Sauce.
A rich yet refreshing wine with intense aromas of passion fruit, nettle, grapefruit, lemon and lime. The palate continues to show plenty of citrus fruit as well as a subtle hint of oak spice from a small proportion of the blend being fermented in French oak.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
