Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Mid-straw with a bright clarity. Lifted and pure aromatics of elderflower, red capsicum and fresh gooseberries. Grapefruit, crushed herbs and jalapeno notes add intrigue and pungency. The palate has freshness and clean fruit purity with a finely balanced, clean acidity. It shows vibrant varietal aromas with full impact on the palate, typical of the Marlborough region. We recommend you enjoy while young and fresh but the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years with carefully cellaring. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish. Also try it with lobster and fish."-Producer

Vibrant currant-leaf, citrus and gooseberry aromas, with freshly cut herb undertones. A full flavoured, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of archetypal currant and gooseberry flavours, that linger on the dry, clean finish.

This is a classic Marlborough style from New Zealand with plenty of tropical fruit, gooseberry and, of course, grapefruit. It has a long, crisp finish that is refreshing on its own or with grilled mahi-mahi.

Light straw, with a bright clarity. Displays lifted grapefruit and white currants, with hints of freshly crushed herbs, nettles and flint. The palate has freshness and clean fruit purity, with a finely balanced, refreshing acidity. It shows vibrant varietal aromas, making a powerful palate impression that is quintessential Marlborough. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough’s famous green-lipped mussels. Also pairs well with grilled snapper or asparagus frittata,
