Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Lifted aromas of almonds, pear, quince and spice. The palate is rich and full-bodied with a soft, mouth filling texture. Flavours of pear, quince and stonefruit lead to an elegant, long and cleansing finish."


5 Stars & No.1 Cuisine Magazine, February 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Whitehaven owners Greg and Sue White made a huge lifestyle change in the 1990s when they embarked on ocean adventures on their yacht Chanticleer. While sailing in the Pacific they sought shelter from hurricane season in the calm Marlborough Sounds and were inspired to pursue another dream, this time on dry land. Whitehaven was that new dream.

Harvested mostly by hand between mid-March and the start of April, the grapes for this wine were smaller than usual, as a result of a hot, dry summer and a lower crop. These smaller berries, however, meant greater intensity of flavour and a softer acid profile in the wine. Once fermented, yeast lees were stirred through regularly to help achieve textural characters in the wine, and also to develop the silky creaminess present on the palate that so appealed to our judges.

The wine has a beautiful perfume of redapple skin, spice and rose petals on the nose which follow through and feel layered on the palate along with notes of gingerbread. The wine has complexity due to the pert yet soft acidity that brings everything together. A seductive, smartly crafted wine with the essential nuances of great gris."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"A gorgeous expression of the variety; the fragrant bouquet shows apricot, honeydew melon, poached pear and floral aromas with a hint of spicy nuance. It's concentrated and succulent on the palate, displaying terrific fruit purity combined with silky texture and refreshing acidity, making it immensely appealing."


Rated Premium & 92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Ripe, fruity and varietal with aromas of sweet green pear and apples, there’s a mix of floral scents and a soft leesy autolysis. On the palate – ripe, fleshy, fruity and just dry with a whisper of residual sweetness. Contrasting acidity and fine phenolic texture adds lengthy and mouthfeel. Balanced and well made, ready to enjoy from today and through 2022."


91/100 Bob Campbell MW (2019 Vintage)
"Gently aromatic and succulent pinot gris with classic ripe pear, nectarine, floral and honeysuckle flavours. A hint of sweetness is perfectly balanced by fruity acidity to give a pleasantly dry-ish finish. An appealing wine from a successful vintage."


Yvonne Lorkin (2019 Vintage)
"At 14% alcohol, this Pinot Gris definitely sails down the crispy-dry side of the street, yet the mid-palate is plump with pear, quince and nashi-laced niceness. Generous and juicy, but also cleansing and refreshing – it’s a very nice thing to drink. Pop it in the fridge for 45 mins before serving and there’ll be smiles all round."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
