Holy aromas! Zesty lime, underripe mango, guava and basil aromas with a juicy mouthwatering palate, bone dry acidity and long lingering citrus notes. Enjoy this light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc with pan-seared scallops. Tasted Mar 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful cool climate Sauvignon Blanc with typicity. Marlborough NZ signature varietal shining brightly. Crisp, mouthwatering tart and dry. Herbaceous, lime zest, lemongrass. Pairs well with citrus drizzled shrimp, shrimp pad Thai, Vietnamese shrimp rice rolls or summer salads. Tasted March 2017. 90 points.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Very fragrant, wit green melon, lime, gooseberry, cut grass, and minerality. Very refined in the mouth. Zippy acidity, and restrained fruit, tending towards lime and gooseberry.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I was doing a wine event recently where I needed a typical, good quality Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. This fit the bill to a T and at a great price point as well! Intense aromas of gooseberry and citrus. Crisp with flavours of lemon zest and stonefruit and a long mouthwatering finish. I paired the wine with a quinoa and black bean salad on a bed of spinach. The lemon based vinaigrette dressing brought it all together for a perfect match! Tasted August 2017
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon green with vibrant steely limestone notes. Bright citrus, gooseberry and stone driven minerals. In the mouth, zingy grapefruit, kiwi, strawberry-rhubarb elements and some spicy green pepper. High zippy acidity, light body and finish. This is a stellar light and fresh. Sensational for summer-salads. 90 points
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Much more in the capsicum zone than gooseberry. Fresh cut hay, grass, lemon and unripe guava join into the mix. Lovely Savvy. 90 points (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Citrus, grass, canned asparagus and gooseberry on nose, with pronounced herbal/grassy flavours and tropical fruit notes. Mouth-watering acidity makes this super with seafood or light salads.
Tasted March 2017
