Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2020 Chardonnay

Gold Medal  - New Zealand International Wine Show

93/100 Points, Excellent - Cameron Douglas, MS
"Aromas of white fruits from peach to apple, pear then lemon. Oak and barrel scents of brown spices, new wood moments and a youthful, fine toasty complexity. Satin-cream textured palate with acidity and wood flavours framing a core of fruit to reflect the bouquet. Warming alcohol, fine wood tannins, some flavours of citrus and spice precede a lengthy finish and a classic style Whitehaven do so well. Best drinking from purchase through 2025+." 

5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, NZ

17.5 Points - Joelle Thomson, DrinksBiz Magazine

Peach, mandarin and nectarine fruit flavours complexed with mealy, hazelnut and butter notes. In the background there is also a flinty, mineral character.Elegant and harmonious, fleshy and vibrantly fruity. A medium bodied wine with a creamy texture and soft acidity. Good richness of ripe peach and grilled grapefruit flavours. The savoury, slight spice and mineral notes add complexity, flavour depth and texture.

Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2020 Pinot Noir

5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

5 Stars - Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

93/100 Points, Excellent - Cameron Douglas 
"Youthful bouquet with a core of red berry fruits and raspberry, some mineral and French oak spice scents of vanilla and cedar. Youthful, vibrant, fresh and varietal. On the palate - equally fruity at the core with flavours that reflect the bouquet, plus plum and a wet rocky mineral quality. Crunchy and refreshing acid line along with ripe tannins add structure and texture leading to a lovely mouthfeel combination of wood, fruit and a sense of place and time. Well made and ready to drink from mid 2022 through 2028." 

Winery Note

"Lifted red cherry and plum notes, with a subtle suggestion of blackberry, thyme, cedar, anise, and savoury pie crust.
Red and dark cherry, baking spices and cola notes provide the core flavours in this wine. The palate is elegant and generously textured with silky, plush tannins and gentle acidity on the finish.

Try with Red meat, game and mushroom dishes would be an excellent match with this Pinot noir.

 Although delicious now, we anticipate this wine will develop gracefully over the next 5-7 years if cellared correctly."

Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2021 Greg Sauvignon Blanc

Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Show

Concentrated, textural sauvignon blanc with guava, citrus, grapefruit, green capsicum, tomato leaf and a suggestion of struck flint flavour. A complex, satisfying wine that deserves its flagship status. 

Classic gooseberry, currant and grapefruit, with complexing wet rock and nettle notes, typical of the Awatere Valley sub-region.

This is a medium-bodied wine with bright, fresh acidity balancing the vibrant gooseberry and pure mineral flavours.  These persist on the lengthy, crisp finish.

 Summer salads, poultry and shellfish - particularly suited to oysters or green shell mussels - as well as lobster and white fish. Our ‘Greg’ Sauvignon Blanc is also the perfect aperitif.

Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2021 Pinot Gris

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit - 94 Points, 5 Stars
Cameron Douglas, MS - 92/100 Points, Premium
Michael Cooper, NZ - 4.5 Stars
Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews - 92/100 Points

Delicate white peach, quince and ripe pear, with a hint of baking spice notes. This Pinot Gris displays flavours of stonefruit and pear, with an underlying mineral quality. Time on lees has contributed to the wine’s rich texture, which is finely balanced out with a gentle thread of acidity that helps to create a long, dry finish.  Although delicious to drink now, this wine should age gracefully for another 3-4 years if cellared carefully.
This Pinot Gris is made to be enjoyed with food. We recommend dishes featuring richer seafoods, mushrooms, light game and poultry.

Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2021 Pinot Noir Rosé

91 Points - CamDouglas
"Very attractive bouquet with aromas of wild flowers and red cherries, tart raspberry, wet stone mineral layer and fruit tea. Equally fruity on the palate with flavours that mirror the bouquet, plenty of crisp textured acidity adds freshness and highlights the core of fruit leading to a dry finish. Plenty to like about this wine and ready for drinking from day of purchase through send of summer 2023."

Five Stars all round for this stunning Rose. Always a fave with Winesale. Great new vintage offering

Winery note

"Delicately lifted and attractive. The nose is packed with aromas of watermelon, red cherries, raspberries, and wildflowers.
Palate: A medium-light bodied wine. The palate is fresh and pure and delivers fruit flavours of red cherries, strawberries, watermelon and subtle hint of pepper and herbs. This bone-dry wine has a creamy mouthfeel balanced with crisp textured acidity.
Cellaring: At its best now to 2023.

Food Match: Serve as an aperitif or match with sashimi or Thai beef salad."
