Whitehaven Wine Co. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016, New Zealand 


My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $20.
Pale lemon in color, almost see through.

Nice nose of white flowers, lemons, tropical fruits, gooseberry, pineapples, minerals, spices, herbs and green apples.

Light to medium-bodied with medium plus acidity, crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, sea salt, grass and white pepper.

Long finish with grapefruits.

A very enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Well balanced with nice complexity.
Enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with spicy Thai food.

13% alcohol by volume.
