    Winemaker Notes

    Pale yellow-green, with star bright clarity, this Sauvignon Blanc offers fragrant aromas of gooseberry, blackcurrant leaf, boxwood, greengage plums, and a hint of tropical fruit. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, with vibrant acidity supporting bright, fragrant fruit flavors that linger on a long, clean finish.

    Perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish (such as Marlborough's famous green-lipped mussels). Also try it with lobster and white fish. Serve lightly chilled.

    Whitehaven   Winery Image

    In 1994, Sue and her late husband Greg White took shelter during a looming hurricane season in a Marlborough harbor at the top of the South Island. Stunned by the beauty of the area, they decided to drop their anchor in the safe haven and officially establish the Whitehaven Winery. Today, Whitehaven offers Sauvignon Blanc that is entirely grown, crafted, and bottled in Marlborough and certified sustainable by the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand organization.

    An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

    The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

    Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
