I do love New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs particularly from the ‘golden mile’ of wine production in Marlborough. 

So today Wilson Wines are featuring two stunning wines from The Whitehaven Wine Company.

2010 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc

This is light yellow- green in colour with a bright clarity.
The bouquet is powerful with lifted notes of gooseberry fruit flavours and grapefruit pith which adds to aromas of freshly cut herbs and nettles in the background.  WOW!
The palate is full, fresh and bursting with mouth watering gooseberry, tropical fruit and nettle flavours with a clean, crisp acid finish.  Serve lightly chilled.

It compliments summer salads, poultry and shellfish such as lobster and white fish.

2009 Whitehaven Riesling

Its pale lemon straw in colour with delicate and lifted aromas of fresh lime cordial and stone fruit with an underlying gunflint note.
On the palate it is powerful with clean acid definition, this Riesling has all the variety’s characteristics.  The aromatics fill the mouth with lime and stone fruit flavours, with a hint of spice.  The finish is dry and crisp.
Serve lightly chilled.

You will be able to actually taste these wines at the Real Ale and Wine Festival at the Gwesty’r Emlyn Hotel over the Bank Holiday weekend.   Wilson Wines will be showcasing over 40 wines from 2pm Saturday and Sunday.

Wilson Wines pride themselves in sourcing excellent wines from around the world to service the licensed trade.  You will not find their wines in any supermarket.
