Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Wine is pale lemon in colour, dry, refreshing acidity, , medium body, and a pronounced nose with a mildly salty tang, passion fruit, grapefruit, citrus and a gooseberry aroma that developed late. Fresh tastes of passion fruit, citrus and grapefruit, with a mild salty tang and hint of gooseberry. Finish was medium length and tangy citrus.This was excellent paired with a plain shrimp cocktail and it would be very good on its own as a summer sipper or aperitif. Predominantly Sauvignon Blanc but rounded by inclusion of Semillon in the blend and with enhanced aromatics courtesy of Muscadelle. A great value!

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely blend of Sauv Blanc and Semillon from a larger producer. There is a splash of Muscadelle that totally elevates the aromatics of the wine, and brings in some tropical and floral elements. The wine is multi-dimensional, with citrus pith, yellow raspberry, gooseberry, cut grass, and a hit of unripe quince. Perfect for a hot summer day in the backyard with some crevettes de Matane. 89 Points.
