AWATERE VALLEY SINGLE VINEYARD SAUVIGNON BLANC

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.

4 out of 4 customers rated Whitehaven (Marlborough) 2019 Greg Sauvignon Blanc as good value for money.

A nice relaxing time on Christmas day, and a great bottle to share. But what a surprise. It didn't strike me as a traditional Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, but was beautiful to drink together on this occasion. Subtle citris would describe it for me, but the "seamless structure" sums it up beautifully. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

Nice easy wine to drink. Can be drunk with almost anything or just chill out on the patio with good company.
