Heather Wall rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Fresh, clean , light and lively Sauvignon Blanc from PEC. Pale lemon-green with clean aromas of pear, oxidized apple, apricot, honey, floral, wet hay.
Wine is dry with mouthwatering acidity. Palate leads more toward green apple, lemon-lime, zest, floral, stony minerality, herbs.
Perfect salad wine or everyday white sipper.
Short crisp finish.
Drink now.

Chris Coughlin rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Solid sauvignon blanc from Sandbanks, all the things you would expect to see: Lemon, citrus, gooseberry and grassy notes. Tasty and simple.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Lemon grass, tropical fruit/mango, high acid with a short finish. Easy sipper with some summer bbq seafood. Not complex, but tasty.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Aromas gooseberry, stonefruit, and lemon, with flavours of tart lemon. This would pair best with a light, green salad.
Valérie Dufour rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Lemon on the nose. Very straight forward not too compicated apero wine. Fruity, but short.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Here's a clear, pale straw yellow wine with light aromas of lemongrass and passionfruit. These are echoed on the palate along with ripe gooseberry. Mediumbodied with gooseberry finish.
Great with grilled white fish or chicken salad.

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.
