Marlborough is the heartland of New Zealand winemaking and is widely recognised as one of the world’s iconic grape growing regions. With long sunshine hours and a relatively cool climate, Marlborough grapes enjoy the advantage of a long, slow ripening period, which intensifies flavours and gives Marlborough wines their unique character.
WHITEHAVEN’S winemaking philosophy is centred on the pursuit of quality without compromise. Chief winemaker Sam Smail leads a talented winemaking team totally committed to this philosophy. Using New World techniques and Old World craftsmanship, Sam and his team are focused on a portfolio of varietal wines that deliver an enviable mix of quality, intensity and consistency, all with an elegant edge.
