(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.
The 2011 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc embodies the quintessential Marlborough style – full-flavored and medium-bodied with fragrant notes of peach, gooseberry and ripe tropical fruit, followed by freshly cut herb undertones. Showcasing a brilliant straw color, this elegant wine refreshes the palate with a long, clean finish.
Very strong fruity taste- tropical/apricot. Good with food. Strong bouquet.
Best Sav Blanc I've had. Well worth the $$
