Elite, Single Vineyard, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, named after the late founder of Whitehaven - Greg White.


Sue and Greg White's vision was always a simple philosophy - to make wines of quality, consistency and integrity. Sadly Greg passed away from cancer, but this elite Single Vineyard wine bearing his name, is the ultimate tribute to that dream.

A clear cut above its competitors with an unrivalled reputation for richness and texture, while retaining its beautifully precise and pure fruit core... its Marlborough essence! The previous 2019 vintage went on to be a Double Trophy Champion, and already this exceptional 2020 vintage has a Gold Medal and a triple 95 point score to its name. In fact one of those 95 point scores is from Bob Campbell and has a special 'Gold Ribbon' awarded to it. This is something Bob awards to wines that have scored highly four vintages in a row. A wonderful testament to the White Family's vision of consistency.

This is top quality classic Awatere Sauvignon, given all the love both in the vineyard and in the winemaking. Taken from low yielding vines and crafted into a tiny production, of which we secured an extremely limited allocation. Classic aromas of gooseberry, blackcurrant, fresh herb and nettle, with a hint of wet stone providing subtle minerality. Succulent with beautiful texture, the lively acidity is bright but nicely rounded, and the wet stone minerality provides the perfect balance to the rich pure fruit.


This is world-class Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that makes an ideal match with oysters, crayfish, green lipped mussels and white fish dishes. Beautiful on release, but will most certainly transform over the next 3-5 years with careful cellaring.


Secure this extremely limited Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, for the amazing price of just $25.99, and experience world-class wine while you can!

Description

Whitehaven’s Greg Series wines are the ultimate in single vineyard expressions... the finest wines they can make and each a tribute to their late founder Greg White who tragically died of cancer. Greg is a small production, fractional to that of Cloudy Bay and one or two other more prominent Marlborough brands. The focus is on absolute quality and at $28/bottle cellar door price... Greg would be my preferred choice. This revered Awatere vineyard has yielded a beautifully pure, exceptionally rich and textured 2020 vintage release that Greg would be honoured to have bear his name.

Smells

A clarion call of fresh dried herbs, citrus, passionfruit, spices and apple.

Tastes

Succulent and beautifully textured, the acidity is bright and round and with a wet rock like minerality combines to give fabulous lift to the rich, pure fruit. A beautiful, premium example of Marlborough Sauvignon contrived from low fruit yields, attentive viticulture and hands-off winemaking. The result is scintillating, and it will drink magnificently through 5-years from vintage so do not be afraid to put a few bottles down for later enjoyment.
