Light straw, with lemon-lime tones. Vibrant currant-leaf and gooseberry aromas, some pungent herbaceous nuances, and a hint of ripe citrus. A full flavored medium bodied wine, with an abundance of currant and gooseberry flavors, and a clean, lingering finish. Great with shellfish, particularly suited to oysters or green shell mussels, as well as lobster and white fish.
|Every bottle of WHITEHAVEN wine proudly carries the anchor insignia, the distinctive quality marque of one of New Zealand’s most respected family wine companies.
Established in 1994 in the heart of the internationally renowned Marlborough region, WHITEHAVEN is the realisation of the White family’s vision to create a respected and critically acclaimed winery. Sailing the Pacific, they set a new course for the Marlborough Sounds, dropped anchor and launched a wine label - WHITEHAVEN.
Today the company is headed by Sue White, an enthusiastic advocate of the region, who continues to make the dreams she shared with her late husband Greg a reality.
Sue leads a small, talented, committed team who together are carving global recognition for the WHITEHAVEN label, showcasing elegant, single varietal Marlborough wines to over a dozen countries.
The WHITEHAVEN philosophy centres on the pursuit of ’quality without compromise’ a principle underpinning the entire winemaking cycle – from vineyard management to every bottle of pure Marlborough wine bearing the WHITEHAVEN label.
In a relatively short history WHITEHAVEN has evolved to become one of Marlborough’s leading ambassadors, our award-winning wines bearing the distinctive anchor insignia are enjoyed around the world.
It’s a marque of quality, consistency and integrity.
