Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2019 Pinot Noir

93/100 Points, Excellent - Cameron Douglas, MS
“Urgent and intense aromas of Pinot with dark cherry and black currant, sweet and spicy French oak with a light toasty quality adds complexity, plum and dark berries and a dry stone earthy quality. Lovely on the palate,balanced, varietal and fruity with a core of pinosity and style. Nut, spice and toasty wood flavours follow the red stone fruit, plum and currant. Balanced and well made showing off complexity, charm and style all at the same time. Well made. Though ready to enjoy today it will also benefit from more cellar time if desired. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+.”

5 Stars - Yvonne Lorkin
“Crafted from fruit grown in the Awatere and Southern Valley’s sub-regions, this little banger of a pinot noir
is destined for big things. Bursting with bright tamarillo, berry tea, cherry and all manner of earthy goodness, it’s ultra-fresh, frisky and fanging with flavour. Smooth, velvety textures and solid, spicy backbone make this an absolute treat to drink.”

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, NZ - 5 Stars
“Gorgeously ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows sweet cherry, game, dark mushroom, clove and cedar characters,
leading to a concentrated palate displaying refinement as well as generosity and persistency. Wonderfully harmonious and delectably appealing. At its best: now to 2026.”

Winery Note

"Lifted spiced cherry, plum and a floral fragrance.  There’s savoury oak char and spice in the background.

Palate: A medium bodied wine with silky, velvety tannins and a firm structure to carry the bright primary fruits and perfumed notes.   The finish has lively acidity, aiding freshness.

Cellaring: Will age well with careful cellaring for three to six years."

4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper
'Showing plenty of personality, the attractively scented 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a light pink, mouthfilling wine, with strawberryish, spicy flavours, peachy notes, a touch of tannin and a dry, lasting finish. A 'serious' but vivacious wine, it's already delicious.'

Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2020 Chardonnay

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+."

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.

A staff fave!

5 Stars - Yvonne Lorkin
94 Points - Cameron Douglas, MS
95 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

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) 2020 Pinot Gris

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit - 94 Points, 5 Stars

92 Points, Premium - Cameron Douglas, MS, NZ

4 Stars - Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Bright, even, pale yellow with some depth. The nose is softly full, nuances of sweet pear, apple, voluminous white florals and a hint of spices. Medium-light bodied, dry-ish to taste, aromas of sweet pear, apple melded with lilies, white florals; a touch of five-spice linger on the finish. The wine has clean and pure fruit, supported by balanced acidity; it flows smoothly on a round and lightly creamy palate. This is a straightforward Pinot Girs with juicy pear and five-spice. Match with chilli pork stir-fried or spiced cajun fish over the next 3 years." 

Stunning pear, ginger, and floral tones are displayed on the nose, with a subtle hint of sweet baking spices.

This textural Pinot Gris shows an elegant array of pear, stone-fruit and almond meal flavours.

Fruit used to make this wine was hand-picked, the vast majority of which came from Whitehaven’s own Pauls Rd vineyard. The fruit was then whole bunch pressed and the resulting juice settled for 24 hours. The juice was then racked to a stainless steel tank, where it underwent fermentation using a selected yeast strain. A portion of this wine (10%) was fermented at a warm temperature in an old oak cuvee. After fermentation, the wine was let to sit on its yeast lees for approximately 5-6 months
