“Whitehaven’s 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is more restrained than I remember previous vintages being, with the focus on a core of generous grapefruit aromas and flavors. Sure, there are hints of green herbs and passion fruit, but they’re contained, composed, and the overall presentation is—dare I say it—medium-bodied and elegant.” Joe Czerwinski

Lifted passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, and peach fruit flavours, with complexing hints of jalapeno, nettle, boxwood and blackcurrant leaf.

A full flavoured, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of regionally typical blackcurrant and gooseberry flavours that linger on the dry, clean finish.

We recommend drinking this 2019 Sauvignon Blanc while it is young and fresh, but the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough’s famous green-shell mussels.  Also try it with lobster and white fish.
