Winemaker Notes

This 2021 Sauvignon Blanc offers an elegant, crisp and beautifully balanced

expression of Marlborough, capturing the quintessential nuances, layers and textures of the celebrated region. Classic aromas of ripe pink grapefruit, lime zest and tropical fruits are complemented by suggestions of lemongrass, green pepper and tomato leaf. The palate is crisp and vibrant, lifted by bright, generous citrus notes layered with white peach, guava and passion fruit. Hints of wet river stone, fresh green herbs and mouthwatering acidity add structure and support. Brilliantly concentrated and textured, subtle suggestions of sea spray add to the stylish, lingering finish.

A perfect pairing to creamy goat cheese, summer salads, fresh seafood or grilled herbed chicken.

Critical Acclaim
Vintage 2018 - 92 Points - Decanter
Varietal and suitably fruity with grapefruit, apple, flower and mineral nose. Nice concentration of flavors on the palate and a fine texture.

COMMENTARY: While I have enjoyed my fair share of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs for more than a decade or so, I continue to be pleased by how consistent the wines perform from vintage to vintage. The 2018 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc is a rock-solid wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows superb ripe citrus peel, lots of grapefruit accents and excellent textures on the palate. Pair it with grilled oysters accented with smoked bacon. (Tasted: March 8, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
