Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting Note: Colour/Appearance: Pale yellow-green, with star bright clarity. Aroma/Bouquet: A fragrant array of gooseberry, blackcurrant leaf, boxwood, greengage plums, and a hint of tropical fruit. Palate: A medium bodied wine with vibrant acidity supporting bright, fragrant fruit flavours that linger on a long, clean finish. Cellaring: We recommend drinking our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc while it is young and fresh, however the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared. Food Match: This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough’s famous green-lipped mussels. Also try it with lobster and white fish. Serve: Lightly chilled. Alcohol: 13.0% Residual Sugar: 3.7 g/L Titratable Acidity: 6.5 g/L pH: 3.3

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.
