Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Fresh, clean and crisp on the palate, Red Rooster Sauvignon Blanc is pin-point balanced, dry, medium-bodied and mouth filling with white stone-fruit, pink grapefruit, lemongrass and earthy mineral flavours finishing long on the palate. Refined and nicely done! Chill and enjoy with oysters, summer salads topped with herbed goat cheese. Tasted June 2021. Available at private retailers in British Columbia.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Sauvignon Blanc to me captures the best of both worlds when I think of the grape. On the one hand, I can see some of the fresh, green herbaceous notes that I might expect in a cooler climate style, but also there are some lovely, rich, citrus and tropical notes that I love about west coast (i.e. California) Sauvignon Blanc. British Columbia's climate might have the perfect recipe? Beautiful, vibrant fruit, hints of fresh herbs, and lovely minerality - this wine has it all. Enjoy with oysters or any shellfish.
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Carefully crafted in small batches, this is a wonderful expression of Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas of salty sea air, crisp apples, floral and herbaceous aromas fill the glass, transforming into a lime finish. Serve extra cold, as an accompaniment to goat cheese salads or seafood.
Tasted Nov 2021
