Overview

The unique terroir, where the Stoneleigh vineyards lie, defines 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 reflect the sun’s heat during the day, assisting ripening, whilst cool nights maintain intense fruit flavours. These factors combine to produce a wine with its own unique sense of ‘place’.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The unique terroir, where the Stoneleigh vineyards lie, defines 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 reflect the sun's heat during the day, assisting ripening, whilst cool nights maintain intense fruit flavours. 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.
