Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2016

100% Sauvignon Blanc from selected vineyard sites across Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere valleys.

Fruit was harvested in cool evening conditions and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. After settling, the clear juice was fermented at low temperatures with selected yeast strains to preserve the varietal flavours. Fermented entirely in stainless steel.

Winemaker's Comments

A fragrant array of gooseberry, blackcurrant leaf, boxwood, greengage plums, and a hint of tropical fruit. On the palate, this is a medium bodied wine with vibrant acidity supporting bright fragrant fruit flavours that linger on a long clean finish.
