Fruitful. Citrus- grapefruit and smooth finish. A Fine wine indeed. Very light and feels good against my teeth- refreshing. A refreshing citrusy wine.
My favorite Sauvignon Blanc! Bursting with vibrant grapefruit with a mineral bite. Excellent!
I have tasted this wine in Chinois Santa Monica and really enjoyed it. It is the best Marlborough 2009 I have tried so far. In my opinion the taste is a combination of currant, green apple, light fruits and some herbs tones.
Flinty, chalky and tropical on the nose. Loads of grapefruit on the palate with lots of acidity. Good but simple. Left a pleasant aftertaste but not one that I enjoyed with my meal. A summertime, afternoon sipper. Good but not great.
Very light yellow straw in the glass. The nose is fresh as spring with grapefruit, honeysuckle, chalk dust and wet slate. The palate is light and elegant showing lemon curd, grapefruit, sour apple and almonds. The finish is refreshing. Much better than last time I tried it. Now, I mean this in the best way possible, you could carbonate this stuff, sell it as a (unsweetened) soft drink and make a fortune.
Flinty, chalky and tropical on the nose. Loads of grapefruit on the palate with rich, zingy acidity. Good but simple. Left a clean, pleasant aftertaste. A summertime, afternoon sipper.
External Reviews for Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
This is classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, in fact Whitehaven has been one of our favorites for some time. Classic grapefruit and gooseberry with crisp acidity and a lingering finish.
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.
GOLD - NZ International Wine Show - Winemakers Notes - Light yellow-green, with a bright clarity. Powerful, lifted notes of gooseberry fruit flavours and grapefruit pith adds to aromas of freshly cut herbs and nettles in the background. The palate is full, fresh and bursting with mouth watering gooseberry, tropical fruit and nettle flavours with a clean, crisp acid finish.
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.
Light to medium in body, but with a suggestion of oiliness to its flavors, which boast a solid core of melon and stone fruit wrapped in layers of green. Herbs and jalapeños can be sharp, but in this wine they actually finish quite easy and soft.
Grassy, with good intensity to tart lime juice and bell pepper flavors. Drink now.
Green in aroma and flavor, this is clean and refreshing; for a rustic pork pâté.
