Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Rated 90 points Beverage Testing Institute - Silvery straw color. Citrusy, tropical aromas and flavors of tropical fruit salad, grapefruit marmalade, and yellow pepper with a supple, tangy, petillant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an even, intricate, very long green apple, peach, honey, and wheatgrass finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A great sauvignon blanc with rich tropical flavors and a long, satisfying finish.

Wine Review Online- From the first whiff this is obviously a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The initial impression is pungent lemon grass that give way with aeration to lovely citrus notes of lemon and lime, followed after a bit more air by gooseberry. Crisp and refreshing, it is beautifully balanced and classic New Zealand Sauvignon. A Platinum award winner at the 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.
Wine AdvocateSlightly pungent and nettle-y, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc also features notes of passion fruit and grapefruit pith. It's light to medium-bodied, with a crisp, refreshing feel and a hint of bitterness on the mouthwatering finish.
