Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Pale yellow. The aroma is fresh and herbal. The palate feels crisp and tastes of tart apples and grapefruit. A refreshing value wine. Score 86. (S.Segard, reviewed Sept 15, 2017)
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc blend (70/30) Definite notes of lemon, dried grass, starfruit, kiwi, and sweet pea. Also some vegetal elements of asparagus, green bean and a touch of leafy green. On the palate there is some peach, grapefruit and citrus. M+ acidity, Medium body and finish. Dry (8g/L) Quite nicely balanced with a touch of white floral pepper at the end. Outstanding price and value!




Natalie's Review

Trapiche Astica Sauvignon Semillon 2017, Mendoza, Argentina: A lovely, light-bodied Argentine white wine blend of 70% Semillon grown in the high valley of Mendoza (contributing minerality and clementine notes) and 30% Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in the low valley region of Mendoza (grapefruit character). Incredible value and taste for this price point. Pair with fresh seafood. Drink: 2017-2019. 359083 13% D 750 mL  $8.00 Score: 87/100. September 4, 2017 Best Value White 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.
