With our amazing offer of two bottles of Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc for €25 starting today,I thought this would be a good time to look at the team behind thisoutstanding Marlborough Sauvignon.
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.
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.
WHITEHAVEN’S winemaking philosophy is centred on the pursuit of quality without compromise. Chief winemaker Sam Smail leads a talented winemaking team totally committed to this philosophy. Using New World techniques and Old World craftsmanship, Sam and his team are focused on a portfolio of varietal wines that deliver an enviable mix of quality, intensity and consistency, all with an elegant edge.
Their award-winning 2013 Sauvignon Blanc palate has freshness and clean fruit purity, with a finely balanced, refreshing acidity. It shows vibrant varietal aromas, making a powerful palate impression that is quintessential Marlborough!
