This is my favorite, everyday, summer drinking wine. Cat pee, grapefruit and tons of balanced acidity. Fruit pours through all day on this one.  This goes really well with a nice brie cheese!

2007 - San Saba Vineyards Bocage Sauvignon Blanc
unique, but not my style
Jun 12, 2008

A little too much skin contact may be to blame, but there is a pencil lead in the nose that shouldn't be there. Other than that, lush tropical fruit and great acidity make this a great first effort. Hopefully next year they will just press and run with the free run.

This was another great vintage.  A nice sauvignon blanc but at the price point there are much better. Nearly clear in appearance witha flowery, citrus and gooseberry on the nose. Dry in the mouth with good acidity.

Solid bottle of white wine. Strong peach nose with a dry palate of gooseberry, peach, and grapefruit. the wine shows good length and complexity with a mineal flavor and feel on the back end. Good wine.

Same old story...

A little more green in this vintage, but not too much.  Very nice grapefruit and bell pepper on the nose turns to kiwi and grass on the palate. A great wine, but most of these Whitehaven SB's are starting to all taste the same to me, which can be both good but also boring.

Just Enjoyable!

This is a simple vintage with not too much complexity but easy to drink.  This  wine comes on strong, from the moment you open the bottle. It has a definite fruity smell, and is very citric and acidic, particularly on the finish. It's very enjoyable for all palates.

This vintage was off the path from the last few.  I would have to say pass on this particular vintage if you are not a vegetable lover. Dominated by green pepper, it also has some grapefruit and cat pee. Very sharp on the palate . The green pepper is too strong for me.

Value!

Great value that delivers again. It has explosive grapefruit on the nose (more pink really). I love the spritz on the palate. You get a great pure rush of kiwi, pineapple, lime, gooseberry, and green apple. Very tangy and acidic but not overly so. Everything is in nice balance. The score would be much higher if the flavors would just stay longer. Great Value!

2002 - Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc
Good Wine but not complex
Jun 09, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
This is another good wine from Whitehaven. The nose on this wine is citrus, and the taste follows suit. Grapefruit is the predominant taste, and can be overwhelming if one doesn't love grapefruit. It is inoffensive in taste, and the crisp fruitiness makes up for the short finish. I would recommend it to those who like crisp, cool, fruity wines. If you're looking for a strong, complex wine, however, look elsewhere.

Easy to drink

It's easy to drink. It had a pale yellow, clear color. I got mostly grapefruit, hint of pineapple, celery on the nose. Taste: grapefruit start switching to lemon. Finished with lemon and pepper. I liked this wine. I found it interesting and thought provoking, very fresh. I would recommend it!

2003 - Tohu Sauvignon Blanc
Best of the Bunch
Jun 05, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
This is the best vintage I've had. An excellent vintage for this wine. It had a vibrant limestone and crab-apple combination.  I would probably give it 3.5 and would love to give it four stars, but I still felt the acidity wasn't quite balanced. Regardless, it was a very good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc worthy of buying again.

This is a good value but needs to be consumed now. Overall it's a fine wine that has a wonderful sense of strength lacking in many competitors. The nose is magnificent, and can be had alone or with a meal.

This wine was once good, but now it's over the hill--has no nose, taste, or soul anymore, only the acid remains. I think that I will go ahead and pour it out. I had it before when it was in its prime, and it was so aromatic and so lively on the tongue!

Good - not Great

This vintage has passed it's prime but it still has some interesting components. I even note a slight stony/chalky note on the nose and flavors. I think I would really liked this alot if the fruit had not faded so much.  Try later vintages.  Great producer.

We had this vintage a week ago actually and it has really held up on the fruit. Also has very nice aromas grass, grapefruit lime peels. The acidity is sharp but not overboard and has attack of citrus (lemons,limes, grapefruit) some kiwi.

This was another crisp vintage, with smooth fruit and a good finish. It was also very green - grassy and somewhat underripe fruit (in a good way). Some slight mineral components that make me very happy.

This was a very pleasant vintage, that was easy to drink. Overall it was an enjoyable white with the expected citrus punch and an overall clean flavor. If there is no red, pass me a bottle of this white.

This wine isn't anything to be ashamed about but then again I wouldn't write home about it. It was difficult enough to muster up the drive to write here and now about it. Not very impressive. Then again, I'm more new world in my white wines and this may be a more old world style. I dunno...if anyone wants to comment, please do. Crisp apple and light oak.

I thought this was much better than the previous reviewer.  It's not the best wine I've ever had but, it was crisp and enjoyable with the salmon we had for dinner.  I wouldn't buy case, but if someone was pouring I wouldn't turn it away.

PASS

This was as bad as the 2005 and it just goes to show that this producer cannot make sav blanc or isn't trying very hard.  Metallic taste really kills everything else, but there are some oak chips and butter spray in there as well. PASS!
