"Aromas of oat bran and savory biscuit sit ahead of pears and peaches. The palate has a supple and creamy texture with ripe, peachy fruit, as well as biscuit crumb to close. Drink now. Screw cap."
Wine Advocate 89
The tropical-scented 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a charming, early-drinking wine. Passion fruit and papaya notes stand out on the nose, adding hints of stone fruit on the medium-bodied palate. Plump and generous, it finishes with bright, citrusy flavors and plenty of refreshment value."
"Whitehaven captures intense notes of passionfruit, lemongrass and white peach in this crisp, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. Superbly structured and elegantly balanced, with fresh-snipped greens and citrus characteristics that blend effortlessly with notes of tropical fruit. Each glass boasts the long, clean finish of classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. With its bright character and crisp finish, Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc pairs beautifully with a wide range of dishes. A chilled glass of Whitehaven is particularly refreshing alongside fresh seafood, spicy Asian dishes, grilled chicken or summer salads with fruits and veggies picked straight from the garden." ~Winemaker Notes
