The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Whitehaven has plentiful power and drive in its bright and light body. With its freshly cut grass and passionfruit-like fruit, it's a taste of summer. All you need is Wimbledon. There's more intensity than usual thanks to the season's naturally small crop, concentrating the fruit and packing a punch. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, March 2022)

Pale straw with green edges and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits with floral herb notes. On the palate ripe apricot, peach and pineapple with lemon zest, classic New Zealand SB. Vivid acidity and spice complement this well balanced wine to a medium finish.

Grapefruit, green apple, and pear are front and center. Acidic with a medium finish and balanced on the palate.

A wonderfully light crisp wine; heavy with citrus, I get a white oak note as well, but none of the reviews I read concur, so take that for what its worth. It is magnificent for a hot humid Louisiana summer.
