WHITEHAVEN NOBLE RIESLING MARLBBOROUGH 2018 375ML
Honey meets candied lemon zest. Deliciously intense sweet Riesling with aromas of limes, green apples and ripe apricots. This is a stellar dessert wine and, we think, even better with your favourite soft cheese.
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.
