Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The citrus, verbena and white stone fruit is stunning. The finish is orange blossom and green tea infused. 89 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Guava and soursop and a hint of apricot intermingle with fresh herbs on this pale straw wine with highlights of green. A lush but crisp mouthfeel presages meyer lemon, guava and fresh grass on the palate. Compared with a typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, this Cali offering is significantly more rounded and pleasing. This wine has enough body to pair with seafood dishes garnished with rich sauces.

Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely bouquet of fresh cut grass and hints of orange blossom transform to a zippy lime finish. Wonderful with a variety of cheese boards.
Tasted November 2017.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Moderate floral and lime zest aromas with zingy green apple, lemongrass, saline and white pepper notes. A simple light bodied, high acid mouthwatering sauvignon blanc. Enjoy with grilled chicken arugula salads and a citrus poppy dressing. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon colour with green reflections. Not as pungent as a New Zealand Sauve, this one has citrus, pink grapefruit, nectarine, fresh cut grass, green mango and a hint of guava. Lots of fruit and delicate herbal notes shining through. Flavours encompass white grapefruit, grass, limestone, wet stones and some green bell pepper in there. Also some floral notes of white pepper add a light spiciness. Medium plus acidity with a medium minus body and finish with white pepper tingling on the tongue at the end. Fresh, bright and crisp. Pair with mixed green salad, fried calamari or pesto seafood flatbreads. 89 points. November 19th, 2017.
Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Mineral and petrichor notes right off the bat. This pale lemon Sauvignon Blanc opens up to some peach and apricot aromas and has a perfect level of acidity to quench your thirst.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Crisp, sour, grassy with mineral notes.

Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Nose: Lemon, linen, flint, herbal grassy notes
Palate: Much of the above confirmed on the palate with some melon notes, acidity zips through in the finish, light bodied.
Easy drinking as a refreshing aperitif, or with lighter salad dishes.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

A non-classic New World Sauvignon Blanc.…
Presentation: Understated, non-descript, would get lost on the shelf
Appearance: Pale lemon
Nose: Medium nose, with notes of lemon, honey, melon, banana, pineapple
Taste: Off-dry, medium-to-full body, high, sharp acidity, low tannins, with notes of white fruits (melon, lemon rind) and some minerals
Finish: long on the fruit
Overall impression: A non-traditional Sauvignon Blanc, full of white fruit. Have it with sweeter foods (Asian, Indian, dessert)
Value: 3.5/5
From Tom Gore, this Sauvignon Blanc (2015) from California is crunchy ripe apples with a crisp and clean finish. Pair with a shrimp and creamy cheese dip. - Community Wine Reviews
