Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2019 (New Zealand)

90PTS W.S.

Winery Tasting Notes: Pale yellow-green, with star bright clarity. Lifted passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, and peach fruit flavors, with complexing hints of jalapeño, nettle, boxwood and blackcurrant leaf. A full flavored, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of regionally typical blackcurrant and gooseberry flavors that linger on the dry, clean finish.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry, and shellfish, such as Marlborough’s famous green-lipped mussels. Also, try it with lobster and white fish.

Wine Advocate 90 Points: “Whitehaven's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is more restrained than I remember previous vintages being, with the focus on a core of generous grapefruit aromas and flavors. Sure, there are hints of green herbs and passion fruit, but they're contained, composed, and the overall presentation is—dare I say it—medium-bodied and elegant."

Winemaker: Sam Smail and Diana Katardzhieva
