2019 WHITEHAVEN GREG SAUVIGNON BLANC 13.5%
Residual sugar: 4.3g/l
Region: MARLBOROUGH – AWATERE VALLEY
Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
The fruit was machine-harvested in cool evening conditions, destemmed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact in the winery. The majority of the juice was settled with enzyme to achieve a high degree of clarity. Fermentation at very low temperature and with selected yeast strains were used to preserve the inherent fruit flavours.
Colour / Appearance: Pale lemon-green, with a bright clarity
Aroma / Bouquet: A lifted and bright array of fresh gooseberry, elderflower, nettles, tomato leaf and jalapeno. There are also the distinct mineral notes, characteristic of the Awatere sub-region.
Palate: A medium-bodied wine with bright and fresh acidity to highlight the lifted, pure fruit aromatics, that persist on the long, clean finish.
Cellaring: Our ‘Greg’ Sauvignon is made to be appreciated either newly bottled or with careful cellaring for 2-3 years.
Food Match: 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.
