An amazing wine for the price! Wow. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Fresh lime lift and grapefruit notes on the nose and palate. Some chives and lemon grass on the finish. Nicely balanced acidity for seafood.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: aperitif or with marinated raw fish, shrimp cocktailm chicken and caviar.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Yummy gooseberry, lemongrass, lime zest. Medium bodied, balanced, mouthwatering acidity. Pairs well with patio weather, good times. Crowd pleasing appeal. Good value. Tasted 2017 vintage in April 2018. 89 points
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lime zest, gooseberry with a hint of pineapple. Medium-bodied with sour notes of lemon, lime, and green apple with balanced acidity. A well done Sauv blanc that could be paired with your next fish or seafood dish. Excellent value at $15!

Tasted July 16, 2018
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

This Sauvignon Blanc has citrus and herbal aromas as well as loads of chives on the nose. It has lime flavours and is beautifully crisp while maintaining some body, and it finishes on a slightly bitter note. It would pair amazingly with salty fried apps.
