Natalie's Score: 94/100

Gorgeous aromas of lime blossom, gooseberry, pink grapefruit and a delicate hint and finesse of white flowers. Lovely citrus lift throughout: this is not a grassy sauvignon blanc. Lots of elegance and refinement yet also beautifully refreshing. Try it with seafood, salads, spinach quiche and vegetarian dishes. Also a min-blowing aperitif.

Reviews and Ratings

Sarah rated this wine as 95/100
The 5 (out of 5) rating indicates a “wine achieving nirvana”. Yes, if this wine had a mantra, it would be: Take Me Ohm. This is unfettered ambrosia and value-laden, sourced from the best fruit of their best sites. Herbaceous, slate/mineral and citrus aromas waft easily from this medium-bodied beauty. Complex and structured with oodles of finesse, it washes over the palate with key lime, gooseberry and minerality on the palate and through the balanced, crisp and refreshing finish. My compliments, it was tough to spit. Exceptional Value. Score: 5 (out of 5). Source: Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Dec. 4, 2012

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
