Overview

The Stoneleigh Latitude range heralds from an area in Marlborough known as the 'Golden Mile'. This 'Golden Mile' is a fertile strip of land covered with ancient riverstones and is highly regarded for its outstanding grape-growing conditions. The resulting wines are aromatically lifted, as well as riper in spectrum, a result of higher concentration of the stones in the area and the effect these have on the vines.

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.
