2017 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc, 94 Points
“From the first whiff, this is obviously a Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The initial impression is pungent lemongrass that gives way through aeration to lovely citrus notes of lemon and lime, followed by gooseberry after a bit more air. Crisp and refreshing, it is beautifully balanced and a classic New Zealand sauvignon. It was a platinum award winner at the 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.” Robert Whitley,, February 6, 2018

2016 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc, 92 Points
“This is classic Marlborough Sauvignon, with all of the flashy aromatics one would expect, but no over-the-top pungency. Similarly, on the palate, there’s exciting grapefruit and lime fruit and lots of zesty acidity, but no sourness and no overtly sugary sweetness. Very well crafted in a manner that was respectful of perfectly ripened fruit. A Double Gold award winner at the 2017 Toast of the Coast Wine Competition.” Michael Franz, February 2017
