Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Meyer lemon, apricot and melon flavors show a note of apple skin, revealing plenty of intensity. Vivid acidity. Drink now. 375,000 cases imported.
This takes a few minutes to open in the glass but when it does reveals typically Marlborough aromas of passion fruit, lime and florals with hints of tomato leaf and white pepper. The palate is bright and zesty, making this an easy-sipping summer drop.
After an initial burst of tropical fruit subsides, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc reveals more sedate notes of nectarine, snow peas and grapefruit. It's medium-bodied and easy-drinking, softening and fading on the finish. Drink it over the next 6-9 months.
