For a long time I have been recommending or buying this wine as an excellent bargain wine, when you need to serve a big crowd a lot of wine. Fresh peach, lychee, white grapefruit, a hint of ginger and nutmeg, this offers a lot of character for the dollar. Crisp and refreshing. Great wine for hors d'ouevres. Creamy cheeses, salty charcuterie, little bites of fruit or tomato or some mutli-pack of freezer appetizers your threw in the oven. Or Cheetos. I mean, whatever you're serving at this party.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Definitely a great value wine. Lots of gooseberry and green, herbal notes on the nose along with some more subtle tropical notes. Flavours carry over on the palate with bright acidity. A great summer wine, salad wine, or try with bright fresh vegetable dishes.
|Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Lemon and grass on the nose with flavours of citrus, gooseberry, green apple. Medium-bodied, well balanced acidity and a long finish. Would pair great with smoked salmon. Great value at $10!

|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Pale straw in colour with aromas of passionfruit, lemon and fresh cut grass. It is light bodied with biting acidity and flavours of lemon and muted tropical fruit. This will pair well with soft or creamy cheese, salads or seafood. This is a good summer sipping wine and a terrific value for the price. Tasted on May 6, 2018.

Crisp and refreshing. Fruity aromas of citrus blossoms and peaches are well balanced by herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics enhanced by a pleasant acidity intensify the wine’s freshness and smooth lingering on the palate.

|120 Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshing, fruity, and balanced wine. The nose offers an enjoyable balance of citrus and tropical fruit, along with the herbal notes typical of this variety. The presence of 2% Semillon boosts the fruit sensation, lending the wine pleasant, persistent and balanced aromas and flavors.|
