Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From the Aconcagua Valley just 2hours north of Santiago. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc is aged entirely in stainless steel and grown in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean. This might account for the slight saline note on the palate. Other aromas and flavours of passion fruit, guava, tomato leaves, grass, asparagus and a mineral lift. In general, the Aconcagua Valley terroir lends more minerality to wines than that nearby Casablanca. The acidity is medium and the wine has a smooth, viscous quality. Elegant and approachable. Perfect for seafood, salads or sipped on it's own. Enjoy now.

Terry Jeans rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A terrific Sauvignon Blanc from a reputable producer from an expanding area of Chili- Aconcagua Costa. A cool climate area that has produced a wine that is well-balanced, fragrant, with nice acidity and surprising minerality. For this price, this is a real steal!
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

very pretty Sauvignon blanc that is a nice balance between the French and New Zealand styles. Aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit, and minerality as well as tomato leaves and asparagus, but not as "in your face" as many modern Sauvignon Blancs. Very balanced in its acidity, and an excellent pairing with white fish in a light cream sauce.

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.
