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.
This is a watery, thin Sauvignon that emphasizes its pungency with green bell pepper notes on even ground with citrus and tropical fruits. Acidity is in balance, although there's what feels like a touch of residual sugar here (despite an overall dryness).
