Lemony, offering melon, peach, lemongrass and mango details that are ripe, fleshy and easily refreshing. Drink now. 74,000 cases imported.

Solidly mainstream in style, Whitehaven's 2009 Sauvignon Blanc displays slightly sweaty aromas to accent its red bell pepper and passion fruit flavors. It's nicely concentrated, with enough palate weight to pair with slightly rich fish or poultry dishes. Drink up.
