Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc



Quick Overview

A classic regional style – the palate is full and vibrant. Fresh nettle, gooseberry and tropical-fruit flavours abound and linger on the long, clean acid finish.



The Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc is from the Marlborough Region of New Zealand. 

The fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions, and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. After settling, the clear juice was fermented at very low temperatures with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent varietal flavours. The wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel preserving the refreshing Marlborough characterstics. 

With aromas of lifted grapefruit and white currants, with hints of freshly crushed herbs, nettles and flint. The palate has freshness and clean fruit purity, with a finely balanced, refreshing acidity. It shows vibrant varietal aromas, making a powerful palate impression that is quintessential Marlborough.

We recommend drinking while young and fresh but the wine is capable of developing nicely over the next three to five years if carefully cellared.

Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough’s famous green-lipped mussels or our very own Cornish mussels! Also pairs well with grilled snapper or asparagus.
