(From 2015 Vintage) 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.
(From «nv» Vintage) The 2011 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc embodies the quintessential Marlborough style – full-flavored and medium-bodied with fragrant notes of peach, gooseberry and ripe tropical fruit, followed by freshly cut herb undertones. Showcasing a brilliant straw color, this elegant wine refreshes the palate with a long, clean finish.
