Whitehaven 2016  Sauvignon Blanc
92 points
Best Buy
Brilliant straw color. Grassy aromas and flavors of grass, grapefruit rind, passionfruit yogurt, and tomato leaf and green pepper with a supple, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long lemon, guava, and white peppercorn finish with fine tannins and no oak. A robust, nicely balanced sauvignon blanc with nice varietal character.

Brilliant yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of passionfruit, green apple chutney, and green tomato with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, pickled melon and grassy meadow finish with fine, chewy, soft tannins and no oak. A nice appetizing sauvignon blanc with a savory center.
