This is a very brilliant wine with notes of citrus and grass. Lemon and grapefruit stand out in this well balanced, slightly acidic, glass of wine. A very good Sauvignon Blanc that is a true representation of the traditional New Zealand style. Great with many foods!

really refreshing stone fruit flavors, yet surprisingly dry. Im normally more of a fan of the citrusy and herbacious SB's, but this was surprising light and crisp on the palate even with the peachiness.

Still that intriguing funky nose, grassy but not overwhelmingly. Its a surprise hit with me to be honest, really nice.

    A meaty, slightly funky nose. Nice acidic attack, lively with strong peach and grass notes. Not overpowering grass, which is nice. Long finish, with some grassiness. Nice.

    Nice, crisp SB. It's got the grassy/herbaceous nose that most New Zealand SB's have, with citrus on the palate. Excellent summer wine!

    A lovely expression of Sauvignon Blanc, this bottling features the classic notes of gooseberry and cut grass on the nose but in a cool, ripe register that also hints at white cranberries with crisp citrus notes. In the mouth this is a textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, zippy with lovely citrus flavors supported by bright acidity in a medium-bodied style, finishing dry with a subtle mineral note that makes this is a natural match for lighter summer fare.

    A light straw-colored wine with classic grassy and ripe citrus accents, this wine refreshes the palate with a clean, lingering finish. Vibrant, full-flavored wine with an abundance of steely mineral and gooseberry flavors.Food Pairing Notes: Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with summer salads, poultry and shellfish, particularly suited to oysters or green shell mussels, as well as lobster and white fish.
