Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc
Last night, we had some friends over for dinner and served two bottles of wine. We started with white, 2006 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. Can't say enough good things about the Sauv Blanc from New Zealand. We've noticed all the bottles from the Marlborough region seem to have screw tops. Fine by us and the word on the street is to get over it as it's more effective.
Back to the Whitehaven - i'll give it an 8.5 out of 10 on the 'goodness' scale. Guest loved it as well. Picked it up at Costco for around $16. Not too dry or too fruity. Flowery (floral undertones) & crisp. Pretty sure there was some asparagus and pear flavors in there. What do i know...enjoyed by all and highly reco this one.
