Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine is fantastic value. It woke my mouth up. The combination of Sauvignon Blanc and Vilana is ripe with flavors of pineapple, melon and citrus. And at $10.99 where I live, you can enjoy it any night of the week.
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

The pale colour of this Sauvignon Blanc belies riper aromas of tree fruit and pineapple found mingling about in the glass with citrus fruit, nettle, and green bean. Light on the palate the tangy finish makes this a refreshing sip.
Thalia White is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Vilana. Golden-green glints, a seductive and extremely fruity nose, with aromas of banana, pineapple, pear and melon, and floral notes on a lime background. On the palate, it is smooth, richly textured with an elegant citrus acidity that provides a good balance, prolonging the refreshing finish. Available in 187ml, 750ml and 1.5 L sizes.
