Slice the garlic cloves in halves and rub on all sides of pork loin. Throw away garlic. Put pork in 9x13 inch pan. Mix the sage, salt and pepper together in a little bowl then sprinkle the spices over the pork loin and roast in a 375 degree oven for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 155 degrees at the thickest part. While the pork roasts, in a small saucepan combine the apples and water. Cover the pot and cook over medium- heat until the apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Take from heat and set aside. Remove the roasting pan from oven and skim off the fat from the juices and discard. Remove pork to platter. Add wine to pan and place on medium heat scrapping up the brown bits at bottom of pan.
