2021 Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Bottle Shot

With Summer just around the corner, we're all looking forward to the warmer evenings enjoyed with friends and family around great food with great wine.

This month, we're sharing a pairing for our 2021 Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, a great wine for this time of year, with classic grapefruit and citrus flavours balanced with a fine, refreshing acidity. 

Try a glass of our 2021 Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and some Marlborough steamed mussels with garlic and lemon - a fantastic match to celebrate Marlborough wine and Marlborough produce this Summer.

Steamed Mussels with Garlic and Lemon

In a large frypan, sizzle crushed garlic and red chilli flakes in a little hot oil. Once fragrant, add your fresh Marlborough mussels and give them a good stir to coat the mussels in the oil. Cover with boiling water and cover, cooking for 6-8 minutes until the mussels have opened up.

Squeeze in lemon juice and chopped parsley, stir and place onto a serving bowl with some of the leftover broth. Be sure to discard any unopened mussels. 

Serve with wedges of lemon and a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
