Whitehaven Wine Company was established in 1994 by majority shareholders, Greg and Sue White, and winemaker, Simon Waghorn. For Greg and Sue, the move to Marlborough was a classic lifestyle change after careers spent in financial markets and marketing. For Simon, the motivation was the pursuit of quality winemaking within a company structure where he could share in the success of his efforts.
External Reviews for Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
This open-textured style appeals with generous pear and passion fruit flavors, mingling nicely on the polished, refined finish. Drink now.
Winemaker Simon Waghorn has crafted a mainstream Sauvignon thatrsquo;s sure to please. Therersquo;s a hint of asparagus, but the core of this medium-weight wine is built around passion fruit flavors that cruise on through the crisp, clean finish.
