Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2021
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Fresh and aromatic, with lemon verbena and lemongrass flavors that are juicy and refreshing, a touch of salted lime and fresh-grated ginger, while pear and yuzu notes linger on the finish. Drink now. 685,000 cases imported.
The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is a well-made, ripe expression that provides immediate enjoyment and balance. It is tender and fresh with elderflower, capsicum and apple citrus flavors on the appealing, lightly textured finish.
Heady aromas of pineapple, passionfruit and lime leaf lead to a crisp, perky palate dominated by bright, limey acidity. Still on the young side, another year in bottle should do this good.
