In 1994, Greg and Sue White sailed the Pacific with their baby daughter Samantha, before being inspired to drop anchor in Marlborough and establish Whitehaven Wines.

As a lover of sparkling wines, it was only going to be a matter of time before Sue would encourage the Whitehaven winemaking team to create a range of premium sparkling wines to add to the Whitehaven range. We are thrilled to be able to offer you our first ever Whitehaven Cuvée.  
Meticulously crafted in exceptionally limited quantities, this inaugural release 2018 vintage 'Samantha' Cuvée celebrates Greg and Sue’s daughter Samantha, as she continues the legacy that her parents created together.

This elegant sparkling wine is sustainably produced, from 100% Marlborough Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit (Chardonnay dominant) and is produced in accordance with Méthode Traditionnelle practices. Enjoy crisp, dry, delicate flavours balanced with lees age derived complexity, finishing fine, clean and long.

Produced in very limited quantities, this is the perfect bubbles to share with friends or to celebrate a special occasion.

For early access to this inaugural, limited availability release, sign up to our Compass Club to ensure you don’t miss out. These wines can be purchased from 1 December 2020 from our online store, or the Whitehaven Cellar Door in Marlborough.
