Winemaker Notes

Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc delivers layered, nuanced character on a refreshingly crisp palate. The wine opens with classic aromas of bright lemon, ripe tropical fruit and fresh-snipped greens. This smooth, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc carries through the aromatic notes to the palate, adding hints of grapefruit, white peach, pineapple and juicy pair. Superbly structured and balanced with a clean, zesty finish.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This wine offers the classic pungency of the Marlborough style. It’s lucid and layered with black currant leaf, gooseberry, waxy citrus fruit and a lick of tomato stem. The palate is slippery and herbal, dry with enough textural weight to pair with soft cheese and salads.

Whitehaven  Winery Video

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.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
