Lemon-lime fresh and clean! Great price for such an imminently refreshing aperitif or companion to field greens and grilled fish. Lots of mouth-watering acidity for a range of dishes. Classic Sauvignon signature with grassy notes, though not over-bearing. Finishes with notes gooseberry.

Splendid Salad Wine

Medium plus intensity aromas of citrus, grassy-ness, and floral. The flavours on the palate are even bigger, have with food.....grilled prawn salad?

Peller Estates Family Series Sauvignon Blanc 2013 features aromas and flavours of apple, melon, grass and a touch of honey. (87/100) Tasted July 14, 2014
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Lemon, gooseberry and floral notes, very aromatic. It is dry with medium acid and medium finish. I would say this would be a good seafood wine on a warm summer evening.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Points for typicity and value! This Sauvignon Blanc ticks off all the right boxes with aromas of red apple, citrus, mango, basil, oregano, cut grass and crisp bell pepper(in a good way). Wine is dry with mouthwatering acidity.
Palate offers pronounced flavour characteristics of fresh cut green pepper, herbs de Provence, tangerine, apricot and some lemon zest.
Length is medium+ on the refreshing finish.
Good everyday white.
Enjoy now on it's own or make it a green salad night with farm fresh summer veggies.

Annelyse Soussotte rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Great value for a daily wine or light dinner. Apple, melon and lemon flavours, very aromatic. It was perfect with my seafood salad, not too acid and can be appreciate as an aperitif.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Light minerality, gooseberry and artichoke. Nice flavours of pear and white grapefruit. There's a medium gooseberry finish and good acidity.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Typical Sauvignon Blanc nose of gooseberry and freshly cut grass. Refreshing acidity. Smart price. Honest white for the summer.
