90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Whitehaven's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is more restrained than I remember previous vintages being, with the focus on a core of generous grapefruit aromas and flavors. Sure, there are hints of green herbs and passion fruit, but they're contained, composed, and the overall presentation is—dare I say it—medium-bodied and elegant.
Crisp and refreshing, Whitehaven captures bright notes of grapefruit and lemongrass in this superbly structured and balanced Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Smooth and zesty on the palate, Whitehaven features Sauvignon Blanc’s classic characteristics of fresh-snipped greens, white peach and pear blends with hints of tropical fruit. Each glass boasts along, clean finish.
