WHITEHAVEN CHARDONNAY MARLBOROUGH 18/19
This is one of our top selling Chardonnays in store at Regional and it's easy to taste why in each creamy, fresh, full bodied sip. It's a tasty balance of flavours with a long zesty finish, thanks to great winemaking at Whitehaven, which is one of Marlborough's oldest wineries.
Whitehaven Wines began life in 1994 as a romantic business for a couple of corporate escapees, Sue and Greg White, who had given up life in the rat race of Auckland for another kind of life aboard their yacht. When sailing around the country, they took shelter in the Marlborough Sounds from Pacific storms and fell in love with the region. An easy thing to do when harbouring in the spectacularly pristine waters of the Sounds. They decided to settle there on terra firma once more and try their hands at wine production, hiring a winemaker and beginning a business which has now been around for 26 years. Greg has sadly passed away now, leaving a legacy as well as his wife and daughter, Sam, to run the winery.
Their winemaker is Peter Jackson.
