Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc embodies the quintessential Marlborough style – full-flavored and medium-bodied with fragrant notes of peach, gooseberry and ripe tropical fruit, followed by freshly cut herb undertones. Showcasing a brilliant straw color, this elegant wine refreshes the palate with a long, clean finish.

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.
