Reviews and Ratings

Joe Hache Prince Edward Count rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Everyone knows my favorite wine varietal is Sauvignon Blanc and one of my favorite regions is Chile & I found another under $10 at the LCBO ... but ... I was so disappointed!

It was very acidic and the grassy aromas that pour forth when you open a good bottle were hardly evident ... we didn't have the pizza suggested as a serving (maybe THAT was the problem!!) but we did have one of my favorite dips with tortilla chips and I thought for sure we had an amazing match ... nope! But for the price, it was OK, hence the score.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This wine has the outstanding fruitiness of the Sauvignon Blanc with pear, peach and delicious hints of citrus aromas. On the palate it is fresh, crispy and flavourful, well balanced and with an excellent structure.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Ce vin a l’aspect fruité exceptionnel du Sauvignon Blanc avec des arômes de poires, de peches et des soupçons délicieux d’agrumes. Au palais, il est frais, vif et savoureux, bien équilibré avec une excellente structure.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
