Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2007
from Marlborough, New Zealand
Color: Mid straw, with lemon tones.
Aroma: Vibrant currant-leaf, citrus and gooseberry aromas, with freshly cut herb undertones.
Palate: A full flavored, medium bodied wine, with an abundance of archetypal currant and gooseberry flavors, that linger on the dry, clean finish.
Food pairings: Summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough's famous green shell mussels, as well as lobster and white fish.
"Bright, pale straw. Knockout nose combines lemon, lime, pear, melon, flowers, licorice and jalapeno, with a spicy ginger quality emerging with air. Then deep and fresh on the palate, with juicy pineapple and grapefruit flavors complicated by a hint of crystallized citrus peel. There's an element of varietally typical herbaceousness but this wine is ripe, balanced and long."

I prefer this over the Kim Crawford, a little softer.
