Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc displays lifted grapefruit and white currants, with hints of freshly crushed herbs, nettles and flint. The palate has freshness and clean fruit purity, with a finely balanced, refreshing acidity. It shows vibrant varietal aromas, making a powerful palate impression that is quintessential Marlborough.
We recommend drinking while young and fresh but the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlboroughs famous green-lipped mussels. Also pairs well with grilled snapper or asparagus frittata. Serve chilled.
