2006 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) A classic regional style – the palate is full and vibrant. Fresh nettle, gooseberry & tropical-fruit flavours abound and linger on the long, clean acid finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Lifted and pure aromatics of elderflower, red capsicum and fresh gooseberries. Grapefruit, crushed herbs and jalapeno notes add intrigue and pungency. The palate has freshness and clean fruit purity with a finely balanced, clean acidity. It shows vibrant varietal aromas with full impact on the palate, typical of the Marlborough region. A perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish. Also try it with lobster and fish.
