The ultimate expression of our minimal-intervention winemaking philosophy, Stoneleigh Wild Valley is crafted using fruit picked at optimum ripeness and is wild fermented by the micro-flora that occur naturally in the Rapaura environment.

Aroma & Palate

This pale lemon-gold wine opens with aromas of stone fruit and summer meadow; clover, wild flowers and bush honey.

The palate is dry and mouth-filling, with nectarine, apricot and citrus hints. The rich texture carries through to a soft, rounded finish with hints of pear.

Enjoy With

Try this wine with a warm goats’ cheese salad garnished with candied walnuts. Equally good with a lemon and garlic roasted chicken, or grilled pork loin, served with sweet baby carrots and parsnips. Light fruit based desserts such as baked apple with cinnamon cream will showcase the versatility of this wine.

WINEMAKING DETAILS

The fruit was harvested between 28th March and 6th April via machine harvester with a portion of hand pick. The grapes were gently bag pressed and then clarified with a small amount of cloudy lees left in. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a portion in large format seasoned oak cuves, to add textural richness. The ferment was spontaneous and natural, which added to the complex array of flavours. The tank and cuve portions were blended before final filtration.
