The Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2006 is a full-flavored medium bodied wine with vibrant currant-leaf and gooseberry aromas, some herbaceous nuances, and a hint of ripe citrus. A pale straw-colored wine with lemon-lime tones, this wine refreshes the palate with a crisp, clean, lingering finish. We recommend drinking our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc while it is young and fresh, but the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three years if carefully cellared.
Review
"Big Yellow grapefruit, little flint, on the palatemore pink grapefruit, lemon and lime. Nice classic New Zeland Sauvignon blanc." Zach Padilla (TLS Product Specialist)

Technical notes
The fruit was machine harvested on flavor criteria in cool evening conditions, destemmed and lightly pressed with no skin contact. The free run juice was cold settled to achieve a high degree of clarity. The clear juice was fermented for 21 days at very low temperatures with selected yeast strains such as Vin7, QA23 and VL3, to preserve the inherent fruit flavors. The juice was aged on light yeast lees post fermentation for three months to give the wine a slightly rounder mouthfeel. A very small amount of residual sugar was retained to balance the crisp natural acidity inherent in the regionís Sauvignon Blanc.

Food pairing
Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with summer salads, poultry and shellfish, particularly suited to oysters or green shell mussels, as well as lobster and white fish.

Producer
From a one-man band to a global brand in just 50 years In 1961, at just 21 years of age, George leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. He harvested his first grapes in 1962 and made his first wine under the name Villa Maria. Throughout the 1960s Villa Maria was a one-man band, with Georgeís wife, Gail, supporting him in his venture. He made dry red and white wines, sourcing grapes from the greater Auckland regions. In the early 1970s he started to employ staff and the company began to expand rapidly. Today, Villa Maria employs more than 250 permanent staff and exports wine to over 50 countries worldwide.
