Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

94 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit. Selected for the inaugural Appellation Marlborough Wine Annual Collection 2022, the Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc is a classical Marlborough Sauvignon. Concentrated yet elegant with flavour density and a lingering, precise finish. Sam Kim from Wine Orbit rated this vintage as 94/100 and described it as "Wonderfully fruited and fresh on the nose showing Granny Smith apple, nettle, lime zest and white floral aromas, it's intensely flavoursome on the palate offering excellent fruit purity and persistency, making it delicious and highly enjoyable."

Tasting Notes

Classical Marlborough with aromas of blackcurrant, grapefruit, lime and crushed herbs underscored with complexing hints of tropical fruits and gooseberry. Pure and concentrated with flavours of white peach, boxwood, citrus and smoky, wet river stone notes. The palate is concentrated yet elegant with flavour density and a lingering, precise finish.

Wine Press Ratings

94 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Wonderfully fruited and fresh on the nose showing Granny Smith apple, nettle, lime zest and white floral aromas, it's intensely flavoursome on the palate offering excellent fruit purity and persistency, making it delicious and highly enjoyable"

93 Points - Cameron Douglas MW

"Pungent and new, varietal with a bouquet of fresh herbs and tropical fruits, apple and lemon with nettles and fruit spice. Taut, fresh, saline and fruity with flavours of citrus and apple-passionfruit, fresh and dried herbs, nettles and peach. High acid line will settle over the next 12 months with best drinking from mid 2023 through 2027."

90 Points - Wine Spectator

Fresh and aromatic, evoking lemon verbena and lemongrass flavors that are juicy and refreshing, with a touch of salted lime and fresh-grated ginger, while pear and yuzu notes linger on the finish.

90 Points - James Suckling

Complex aromas of flint, licorice, aniseed and sliced lemon follow through to a medium to full body, steely palate and a fresh finish. Crisp yet creamy texture.
