Whitehaven Block 11 Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2022 750ml

Whitehaven’s single vineyard range of wines speak to the importance of terroir in creating unique, premium quality wines, and allow us to showcase outstanding, smaller parcels of fruit identified by our winemakers each vintage. Reflecting the exclusive nature of these wines, each bottle is individually numbered.  We have used a lightweight bottle to lessen this wine’s impact on the environment.

This barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc has been handpicked from our Block 11 vineyard on our estate, situated near the banks of the Wairau River.  The fruit is whole bunch pressed to retain purity and precision in the juice, which is then transferred to old French oak puncheons for 13 months.  Displaying aromatic floral, ripe citrus peel and stonefruit on the nose, and restrained lemon rind, melon, lanolin and gentle vanilla notes on the palate, this wine is textured and finely balanced. 

Food Match:  Delicious with lemon and herb chicken, goat's cheese and smoked or grilled seafood dishes.

Cellaring:  Being the inaugural release of this wine, we expect the wine will drink at its optimum in the immediate 4 - 6 years following vintage.  However, we believe the wine has the structure and closure to allow continued development with careful cellaring.

Appellation Marlborough Wine (AMW) certified.
