Whitehaven Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2014:
Fresh off a 94-point rated 2013 vintage by Wine Review Online, Whitehaven once again steals the show with its 2014 vintage. It’s perfect as an aperitif, or paired with sushi, seafood, or spicy Indian cuisine. Fresh nettle, gooseberry and tropical-fruit flavors abound and linger on the long, clean acid finish. There’s a candied lime aspect to this wine that is at once piercing and thirst-quenching. The grapes are harvested in the cool of the night, keeping the flavors fresh and aromas bright before pressing. Entirely fermented in stainless steel, this “utterly Marlborough” wine is pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc. At a regular price of $__.__, this wine is perennial value. At our sale price of $__.__, we encourage purchasing by the six-pack case.
