No, this definitely isnt made in Whitehaven, West Cumbria but it is one of New Zealands finest wineries and Richardsons are proud to have stocked every single vintage of their wines.
Established in 1994 in the heart of the internationally renowned Marlborough region, WHITEHAVEN is the realisation of the White family's vision to create a respected and critically acclaimed winery. Sailing the Pacific, they set a new course for the Marlborough Sounds, dropped anchor and launched a wine label - WHITEHAVEN.
Today the company is headed by Sue White, an enthusiastic advocate of the region, who continues to make the dreams she shared with her late husband Greg a reality.
Sue leads a small, talented, committed team who together are carving global recognition for the WHITEHAVEN label, showcasing elegant, single varietal Marlborough wines to over a dozen countries.
The WHITEHAVEN philosophy centres on the pursuit of 'quality without compromise' a principle underpinning the entire winemaking cycle – from vineyard management to every bottle of pure Marlborough wine bearing the WHITEHAVEN label.
Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc.
Crisp, clean and intensely fruity with refreshing acidity. A classic Marlborough Sauvignon. Great as an aperitif or with seafood.
A lightly textured wine with a fresh, crisp acid zestiness, supporting the lemon and green apple fruit flavours and aiding the mineral seams. Superbly paired with Asian cuisine and crisp green salads.
