A Wine Enthusiast `Best Buy`: Captures the pungent alert character inherent to Sauvignon Blanc. This is a peppy wine with spiky tropical and green-fruit aromas and flavors. It's a mash up of citrus and nettles with a controlled farily long grapefruit-d

big acid. a core of sour apple, grapefruit and crabgrass. this is pretty versatile and will go with any lemon white wine dish, like fish or lemon chicken.

Crisp, medium bodied Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. Strong flavors of tropical fruit including guava, grapefruit, and citrus. Flavors are very dynamic and continue into the finish. Very good wine for the money, have tried two bottles already.

Served slightly chilled. Floral notes present in the nose. Nice acidity accompanies a flourish of various fruit flavors and lends a crisp character to the wine. Medium-light body. Clean finish. I don't think this wine is going to outright amaze anyone but for the price I think that it is an excellent value.

A bit less intense than last year's bottling, this had aromas of gooseberry and pink grapefruit. The flavors pick up a richer note of crushed pineapple along with the gooseberry and grapefruit flavors. Juicy, mouthwatering finish. Undeniably great value.

Huge grapefruit flavor pairs with grassy, even hay-like notes, while the ample acid provides a pleasant, cleansing mouth-feel.

This is a serious review--it tastes like grapefruit juice from a can. I'm not a big S. Blanc fan anyway, but this is icky. Trying to find a way to mix it into a palatable wine cooler. Not totally undrinkable, hence the 1 1/2 stars instead of 1, but to me it has no grassy notes, no undertones, nothing but a strong grapefruit taste. Much better S. Blancs out there!

Super grassy, with fresh cut apricot, white peach, nectarine. A deeper delve gives an unusual clean finish of lentils and raw harvest corn. Good price. Interesting enough to try at least once.

A Wine Enthusiast `Best Buy`: Captures the pungent alert character inherent to Sauvignon Blanc. This is a peppy wine with spiky tropical and green-fruit aromas and flavors. It's a mash up of citrus and nettles with a controlled farily long grapefruit-d

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast Good clarity with light straw color. Fresh stone fruit, citrus, and herbs mingle with floral accents on the nose. Zesty, medium body with citrus, melon and herb flavors that linger on the palate. Perfect at the sushi bar, or for sipping on the porch and with fresh salads, goat cheese, poached fish and more.
