Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2005

Member Review by sleepy:

Quality NZ Sauvignon Blanc at a great price. I don't know if its the extra year in the bottle, but the 2005 was much better than the 2006 that I opened back to back. The 05 was full of melon and citrus. The 06 was the same, but with a strong "grassy" bitterness. Quite quaffable

Whitehaven Wine Company Ltd:
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.

A very "green" wine (full of limes, melons, and more). It has a nice, clean palate and even a cleansing finish. An affordable wine from the land of the Kiwi. Buy it now, go out on the deck, drink a glass, and smile at the world.
