Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Bright and evocative aromas emerge here: kiwi and passion fruit, and fresh-cut herbs. In the mouth, this crisp and aromatic sauvignon blanc is full of tropical fruit flavors with a prickle of dried peppercorns on the finish.  (Jul 2015)

Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2014 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc has a peach-laced nose with underlying hints of gooseberries, grapefruit and chopped herbs. Medium-bodied, the rasping acidity injects plenty of freshness into the intense citrus and herb flavors with a pleasant touch of phenolic chew to lend texture and interest to the good, long finish. (Apr 2015)

Wine maker notes
The fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions, destemmed, must chilled and pressed immediately. The free run juice was settled to achieve a high degree of clarity. The clear juice was fermented in upright stainless steel fermenters with selected yeast strains such as PdM, QA23 and VL3 to preserve the inherent fruit flavors. Winemaking techniques and handling were reduced to promote the natural fruit flavor and intensity found in Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
