Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red color with bright clarity. Bright ripe cherry and plum fruit aromas, underlined with gamey, spicy oak and attractive savory tones. This wine has a supple, silky texture, gently supporting an array of red fruits and secondary game flavors. Well integrated oak provides savory and spicy notes as well as aiding the tannin structure. Try this wine with game meats such as duck or venison. Can age 3-5 years.

About Whitehaven :

Established in 1994 by Sue and Greg White and winemaker Simon Waghorn, Whitehaven Wine Company is a small, family-owned winery with big aspirations. Sourcing fruit from its own estates and from 12 joint venture or contract growers across Marlborough's Wairau and Awatere valleys, Whitehaven quickly established a reputation for producing quality wines. From modest beginnings, the Company now exports wine, through exclusive agents, to Australia, the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Japan, and the United States.
