Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2004

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

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.

This open-textured style appeals with generous pear and passion fruit flavors, mingling nicely on the polished, refined finish. Drink now.
