Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Wow! Still gorgeous and everything one could want in a Sauvignon Blanc. River Stone Estate Winery 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is just so fresh, zingy and beautifully balanced. The 2022 is medium-bodied and dry, but zesty fruity with ripe gooseberry, passionfruit, grapefruit zest, subtle herbal and mineral notes balanced with mouth-watering acidity and an amazingly long finish. No sharp edges here, just so, so good!

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this vintage were sourced from the winery's Boulder City Vineyard as well as a neighbouring vineyard in North Oliver. Grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed, cold soaked for several hours and then pressed to tanks for a controlled temperature fermentation. The wine was racked several more times over the following few months before finning, filtering and bottling. Tasted July 2023.
Julian Park rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc, the best I have tasted so far this year! Aromas of citrus, and tropical fruits with floral jasmine notes. Flavours of lemon/lime, pineapple, honeydew melon and passionfruit with green apple on the finish. A beautifully textured mouthfeel.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine is is 100% BC grown, from the Boulder City Vineyard near Oliver, BC, and has me envisioning a tropical vacation. Aromas of passion fruit, gooseberry, ripe melon, and pineapple. Medium bodied on the palate with a nice balance of creaminess and bright, mouthwatering acidity. Vibrant fruit on the palate, and mineral hints on the finish. Enjoy with white fish served with mango salsa.
