Winemaker's Notes:

The Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2010 embodies the quintessential Marlborough style: Full-flavored and medium -bodied with fragrant notes of citrus, gooseberry and ripe tropical fruit followed by freshly cut herb undertones. A brilliant straw color, this rich and elegant wine refreshes the palate with a clean, crisp, long finish. We recommend enjoying our 2010 Sauvignon Blanc while it is young, but the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next two years if carefully cellared.

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.
