Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A vibrant wine with rich red-berry aromas.

Palate

A palate bursting with flavours of strawberry, raspberry, boysenberry and dark cherry, all complemented by subtle savoury and toasty notes. Layers of texture and rich flavours give this wine a voluminous mouth-feel.

Food Matching

This wine is best enjoyed with succulent red meat dishes, such as spring lamb, duck, veal or game. Dishes featuring mushrooms or red berry fruits will also complement this Pinot Noir beautifully

Cellar

This wine is ready to drink upon release but will cellar well for 2-4 years, for a more savoury, aged character

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.
