Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2004
Pale lemon-yellow color. Aromas and flavors of lime, mint, pepper and licorice. Fleshy and ripe in the middle, then a bit tart on the back, finishing with dusty, varietally accurate notes of basil and licorice.Add winemaker's notes
Whitehaven Wine Company was established in 1994 by majority shareholders, Greg and Sue White, and winemaker, Simon Waghorn. For Greg and Sue, the move to Marlborough was a classic lifestyle change after careers spent in financial markets and marketing. For Simon, the motivation was the pursuit of quality winemaking within a company structure where he could share in the success of his efforts.

Winemaker Simon Waghorn has crafted a mainstream Sauvignon thatrsquo;s sure to please. Therersquo;s a hint of asparagus, but the core of this medium-weight wine is built around passion fruit flavors that cruise on through the crisp, clean finish.
