Whitehaven Greg Awatere Valley Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

The intensely varietal 2021 vintage (5*) is a highly aromatic wine, tank-fermented and briefly lees-aged. Light lemon/green, it has fresh, penetrating, tropical fruit and herbaceous flavours, enlivened by racy acidity, and a finely poised (2.6 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. A benchmark Awatere Valley style.
