90 "Mouthfilling and lush in its simple delivery of deliciously ripe fruit. The peach and nectarine flavors may be sweetly ripe, but the wine remains dry, direct. A clean sauvignon to serve with olives and country paté." --Wine & Spirits Magazine 

 

90 "Refreshing and delicious, a crisp, delicate wine that's not too grassy. Has pleasant lime, apple and vanilla flavors that drink pure and refined. A distinctive, superior Sauvignon Blanc that shows off its terroir." --Wine Enthusiast Magazine
