Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Great everyday Ontario wine if you love the dry and crisp style. This sauvignon blanc is full of citrus (lemon and grapefruit) and herbal elements and some good minerality.

Great Feta cheese pairing wine! When pairing with this briny cheese, don't try to fight the saltiness or you will end up with a dead tasting wine. Instead, match the salinity with the minerality and super-crisp acidity in this sauvignon blanc.

Although feta cheese is best known for it's appearance in the Greek salad, I like instead like to use it in a more contrasting salad combo: start with a base of any salad greens you like (did I mention I like arugala? I do), top with cubed fruit (either mango, cantelope, or watermelon), cubed feta cheese, diced avocado, and chopped toasted cashews. Simple salad dressing of lemon or lime juice and olive oil.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Clear and bright with a fresh clean aroma of citrus, green apple, spring blossoms, grassy notes, white peach and tropical fruit. This Sauvignon Blanc wakes the palate with refreshing flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, pineapple and grassy notes. A lively, medium-bodied white wine with lots of citrus fruit flavors on the finish.

Louise Wilson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very aromatic with notes of gooseberry, melon and a hint of cut grass. Juicy and easy to drink. Delightful with spinach quiche. Drink now to capture its zesty fresh appeal. Tasted Nov 2013.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
