Natalie's Score: 92/100
Gorgeous tropical fruit and wild thyme on the nose of this flinty, mineral-rich Sauvignon Blanc. Terrific flavour extraction without heaviness. Aromas of grapefruit, smoke and lime. Pair with smoked salmon.
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: baked goat cheese with cranberry and cherry coulee, goat cheese green onion and smoked salmon pizza.

|Andrea Shapiro - Andrea's Wine Cellar reviewed this wine as follows:|
Grown on Limestone hills. Water white colour, Crisp green apple, lemon, white grapefruit and sweat. A touch of funky fun. Also a few traditional notes of gooseberry and passionfruit. Grapefruit, asparagus, kiwi, nectarine, sweet finish with nectarine and starfruit flavours on the finish. Juicy and mouth watering with a hint of sweetness at the end. Pair with white balsamic glazed chicken and arugula-endive goat's cheese salad.
