Heather Wall rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Brilliant pale straw. Light-bodied. Crisp and steely with a somewhat creamy texture for SB. A nice contrast. Also, floral, honeydew melon, honey, herbaceous and citrus.
Perfect patio sipper or Asian cuisine. Goat cheese and walnut salad.
Drink now. Great value Sauvignon Blanc
Jane Staples rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lively Sauvignon Blanc, with clean,classic Aussie tropical fruit flvours-passionfruit,melon, also pear and apple and herbal hints. Great acidity and mouthfeel, achieving Oatley's quest for wines with texture, persistent finish. Ideal with Asian cuisine or shellfish or ligt poultry dishes.

Tic Tok Pocketwatch Sauvignon Blanc 2012 has beautiful citrus, tropical fruit and floral aromas. Flavours of apple, pear and grass. Great value for the price. Tasted January 16, 2014 (88/100)
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

2012 Tic Tok Pocketwatch from Western Australia ($14.95 LCBO GL 187039). Less delicate than the Signature Series, the Tic Tok is very expressive with great acidity and exotic fruit characteristics.

Natalie's Review

Robert Oatley Vineyards Tic Tok Pocketwatch Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Western Australia, Australia: Crisp and fresh with lovely notes of lime, lemongrass and chives. Great mouth-watering acidity for food, this wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks (no oak) to preserve the fruit freshness of grapes that were picked at night. Try it with fresh seafood. Great price. Drink: 2014-2015. 187039 12.50% D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 89/100. February 1, 2014 Best Value White Wine. Sensational Shellfish Wine  Full Review

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.
