Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw in color, with lemon-lime tones. White currants, gooseberries, some minerally herbal notes and a whiff of honeysuckle. Full flavored, fuller bodied wine, with easy drinking appeal and an abundance of currant and gooseberry flavour. The clean acid and mineral texture of Awatere valley fruit harmonises well with the more sumptuous weight of the Wairau components. Suggested Foods: Summer salads, poultry and seafood.
My Notes:

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.
