Who Makes Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc?

Whitehaven Wines was founded by Greg and Sue White in 1994 in Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand.

In 1994, they established Whitehaven, a combination of their last name and the word “haven.” They found Malborough as their safe place and with the family and friends that helped them along the way.

With the winery’s immediate success, Whitehaven was one of the first wineries from New Zealand that experienced success in the United States.

My Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc Review

If you’re looking for a good representation of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, this Sauvignon Blanc is the wine to buy. It’s easy to drink, accessible, and affordable.

It has a pale yellow color on the glass and is almost clear on the rim. On the nose, you get a hit of fresh cut grass, with a citrusy smell of passion fruit and lemon. It’s bursting with citrus flavors with a hint of residual sugar to give a hint of sweetness.

Also, it’s crisp and refreshing, perfect for any hot summer day, making it easy for the masses to enjoy.
