Lifted passionfruit, gooseberry and white currant fruit flavours, with notes of nettle, red capsicum and boxwood. A medium bodied wine with a vibrant acidity. The intense fruit flavors persist on the lengthy clean, dry finish. Shows vibrant varietal aromas, making a powerful palate impression that is quintessential Marlborough. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish.
The 2014 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc has a peach-laced nose with underlying hints of gooseberries, grapefruit and chopped herbs. Medium-bodied, the rasping acidity injects plenty of freshness into the intense citrus and herb flavors with a pleasant touch of phenolic chew to lend texture and interest to the good, long finish.Wine Advocate 87
