Reviews and Ratings
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lemon and melon on the nose with a touch of honey - the flavors are crisp and tart with lots of lemon peel, grapefruit, melon, apple and an understated herbaceousness. Lovely Summer sipper.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Really ripe and soft Sauvignon Blanc. It is tropical, lile many on the market, like New Zealand, but this is so much less tart and racy. It is juicy, but Roberto DiDomenico and his team have crafted something far more subtle.
Bright lemon-yellow, but with a green tinge and a watery rim.
The aromas have plenty of nectarine, peach, melon, and guava. Some lifted white-flower elements really make this quite pretty.
The flavours are juicy and ripe. Markedly less green crunchy. Lots of melon, apple, yellow plum, and a touch of white grapefruit.
Hallmarks of Niagara Sauv Blanc always tend to have some almond, whiteflower, guava, and sweet pea flavours to them. They can be abundantly green woth crunchy green elements. 2010 was so sunny and hot, the resulting wine is full of super-ripe yellow fruit, with the typical white fruit and florality Niagara garners.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Zesty lime, lemongrass, honeydew melon and pineapple. Medium bodied. Pairs well with summer salads, baked white fish, fresh snow crab. Tasted 2016 vintage in July 2017. 88 points. Great value.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Crisp and fresh, with lemon, grapefruit, apple flavours and bit of a nutty finish. Excellent value. Pair with salad or spring greens risotto.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Not exactly a benchmark Sauvignon Blanc with stone fruit, honey, lemon peel, and crush almond notes but a pleasant medium-bodied summer sipper. Enjoy with fish and chips. Tasted July 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
