Grüner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc

Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Review

Unmistakably New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, with aggressively green bell pepper-jalapeño greenness and bright grapefruit on the nose. The palate has plenty of zing and acidity, adding in even more citrus with some lime zest and crunchy green apple. Certainly an in-your-face wine, but not overblown.
