Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clean and crisp, this light bodied Sauvignon Blanc had aromas and flavors of green pepper, lemon and lime. It's elegant with beautiful acidity. A great wine to compliment sole or cod, and a wide variety of grilled vegetables. A Sauvignon Blanc is a clean light wine that will go with many foods.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh and fruity, this sauvignon blanc has lots of citrus and tropical fruit on the palate. It is crisp and refreshing, and versatile enough to have with many different types of foods - not to mention a great value!
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Citrus, honeydew and asparagus flavors integrated with good acidity.
Lee Newby - AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Very good wine with fresh lime and grapefruit over sweet garden herbs and touch of lemon grass. The fruit has medium plus concentration and intensity. The acidity is medium plus and the balance gives a medium plus finish. The wine has good structure and complexity. Drink now and for 2-3 years.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Dominant aromas of juicy grapefruit, fragrant citrus blooms and ripe apricots are finely balanced with black currant undertones and cassis. Its crisp, fresh, dry and concentrated flavors are well balanced concluding in a rich, lingering finish.

Les arômes dominants de pamplemousse juteux, de fleurs aromatiques d’agrumes et d’abricot mur sont finement équilibrés par des sous-tons de cassis noir et de cassis. Ses saveurs vives, fraîches, scches et concentrées sont bien équilibrées et

This wine has a brilliant yellow color with green hues. Its intense aroma is a fragrant blend of citrus fruit and maracuya with a herbaceous backdrop typical of this variety. On the palate, it is concentrated, with a pleasant acidity that highlights its freshness, firm structure and excellent persistence.
