He says: We’re actually looking forward to the rest of the new portfolio from this winery.
She says: Lovely, rich fruit and strong grassy notes, all rounded beautifully by a hint of oak.
He says: This is a great wine at an amazing price, and it’s good to see Bordeaux deliver something other than plonk at the sub-$20 level.
She says: This tasted more New World to me than Bordeaux with its mouthwatering acidity and intense Sauvignon Blanc nose.
He says: When people say a wine needs food, they usually mean that a wine is unbalanced and needs some disguising…
She says: The first time I had this wine I really enjoyed it but in this blind tasting it did stand out as overly-oaked.
He says: A solid bottle of Sauvignon Blanc with more of a New World style – sure to be a crowd pleaser
She says: The price tag was not so balanced although not crazy for Sancerre.
She says: Overall, this wine showed excellent balance with its high Sauvignon Blanc content providing refreshing acidity.
He says: Lived up to its reputation as one of the best white wines from the Okanagan.
He says: I didn’t mind it, and it would be good in the right situation, however, it’s not without its flaws.
She says: Overall, this wine had a lovely aroma and flavour profile.
On the evening of Canada Day, we decided to have our two good friends, the CakeBitch & El Capitan, over for some homemade pizza and an impromptu wine tasting. This was the first time they’ve ever “tasted blind” by having two glasses of the same variety side-by-side to compare and contrast.
