Gold Medal - Sakura Japan Women's Wine Awards

Gold Ribbon, 95 Points - Bob Campbell
Intense punchy sauvignon blanc with passionfruit, lime, grapefruit, capsicum and gooseberry flavours. A lively wine showing a nice interplay of contrasting characters and pleasing acidity that drives a lingering finish.' 

5 Stars - Yvonne Lorkin
"Named after the late Greg White, Whitehaven’s co-founder, the ‘Greg’ range of wines are only created when the fruit is absolutely perfect and are made by winemaker Diana Katardzhieva. The 2020 is pretty darn delicious and absolutely stacked with citrus, lemongrass, crushed basil and classic punchy passionfruit on the nose and palate. It’s incredibly refreshing to sip, giving the tastebuds an excellent exfoliation as it slides across them and down the oesophagus. It’s incredibly juicy and I could sip it all day." 

94 Points - Cameron Douglas, MS
Ripe, fruity, varietal, pungent and elegant with a power-drive in the initial bouquet that transitions to a softer more satin textured expression. Aromas of sage and spice, citrus and peach, tropical fruit moments and wet mineral - stone qualities. On the palate - crisp, dry and packed with flavour. It also shows it’s elegant side as well with a satin, salty mouthfeel, fruit flavours that reflect the nose, an abundance of acidity and fine fruit spice flavours. Balanced and well made with a lengthy finish. 

95 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Wonderfully ripe and instantly appealing, the wine shows passionfruit, feijoa, green rockmelon and kaffir lime characters on the nose. It's equally impressive on the palate, offering excellent concentration and persistency, making it splendidly appealing and drinkable. At its best: now to 2025."

The awards just keep rolling in! 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.
