Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Riverlore Sauvignon Blanc shows characteristically exotic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc citrus fruit, gooseberry, passion fruit, herbaceousness, with crisp sea breeze salinity. On the palate, crisp citrus, orchard fruit, and lemon grass with well balanced acidity and refreshing minerality make this a great wine to enjoy with summer salads, grilled fruit and veggies, soft cheese, or simply on its own served ice-cold in the company of good friends. An impressive and very consumer friendly Sauvignon Blanc that I'd highly recommend enjoying in the summer sun and into the fall. Tasted May 2016. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
David Skinner rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium straw colour. Grapefruit, citrus, and herbal notes on the nose. Medium acidity lends a rich rounded mouthfeel to a well-balanced palate. More citrus and some tight minerality lingers on the long finish.

Seared diver scallops with a blood orange sauce would be fantastic with this.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
