Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On the nose, there are aromas of peach, petrol, almond, saline, herbal notes, and white flower.

On the palate, there are flavours of peach, lychee, lemon, clementine, mineral notes, and a slightly bitter almond finish.

Enjoy with seafood salad.

Tasted May 2018
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lemon-lime and white grapefruit, also leaning more to bright, tropical notes - mango and guava are subtle but present on the palate. Nice balance of flavours. Enjoy with seafood, and summer salads.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Grapefruit, gooseberry, lemongrass, smoke, mineral, green grape. Crisp and creamy and a little bitter, and a long lingering savouriness like a good cheese. There is a lot going on here! Would go with a great varierty of cheese, particularly aged hard cheese like parm, manchego, or a smoked chedder. Would also go excellent with a grilled fish.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Tropical and fresh. Inviting and easy to drink. This Sauv Blanc is produced by the Goliath of the Canadian wine industry, Mission Hill.
They have more area under vine than anyone else in Canada... By far!
Their Sauv has lots of crisp acidity. A deep yellow colour, and aromas of melon, gooseberry, and passionfruit.
Lemongrass tea, lemon, more guava and passionfruit, and a pleasing finish.
Put this alongside your hipster avocado toast. You know you want some....
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Refreshing and crisp, mouthwatering with aromatics of lime zest, lemongrass, a hint of sweet basil. A great companion for sushi, herb roasted chicken or Seasonal favourite roast turkey with fixings. Tasted Dec 2016. Rated 89/100.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Zesty lemon grass, white pepper, citrus and green pineapple. Fresh, crisp, and light bodied with long zesty fresh herb finish. Enjoy pearing with asparagus salads. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
