The unique terroir, where the Stoneleigh vineyards lie, de nes the wine’s independent qualities. Located on the northern side of the Wairau Valley, in close proximity to Marlborough’s main river, the Wairau, the vignerons have located the vineyards on deep, infertile gravel beds covered in smooth ‘sunstones’. These sunstones re ect the sun’s heat during the day, assisting ripening, whilst cool nights maintain intense fruit avours. These factors combine to produce a wine with its own unique ‘place’.

The winemaker has harvested the fruit at peak intensity looking for both fresh and ripe fruit properties. By minimising winemaking intervention, the wine is able to express perfectly its unique origin.

Aroma & Palate

This wine is a beautiful rosy blush colour. The perfumed nose shows a medley of oral and berry notes. The palate is fruit-forward with strawberries, raspberries and a touch of rockmelon sorbet. The wine has great freshness and a crisp soft finish.

Food Matches

This wine will accompany seafood beautifully, from sushi and oysters, to BBQ salmon or crispy squid. Summer salads will work too- try a fruity vinaigrette over an avocado and strawberry salad, or a Greek salad with chunks of feta. Lightly spiced dishes with a touch of sweetness such as Pad Thai noodles, or chicken with sweet chilli sauce will also be a delicious pairing.
Stoneleigh Grapes On Vine

WINEMAKING DETAILS

The grapes were machine harvested on the the 22nd and 27th March. The fruit was crushed directly to a Bag press where we managed to extract just enough colour for this delicate fruit driven style of wine. The must was then gently pressed and the juice settled. The clean juice was then racked and fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeast to retain the varietal essence of the Pinot Noir grape.
