Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2021 Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Oct-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full, displaying aromas of white currant, lime, tomato vine melded with a hint of white spice. Medium-light bodied, vibrant aromas of white currant, lime interweave gooseberries, herbaceous tomato vine, followed by white pepper lends a lengthy finish. The fruit has brilliant concentration and ripeness, supported by a lively acid line. Subtle fine-textured phenolics provide an elegant presence, leaving a chalky mouthfeel. This is an elegant Sauvignon Blanc with concentration, refreshing acidity on a chalky textured palate. Match with steamed mussels and white fish over the next 3 years. Fermented to 13% alc, 2.3g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $22
