Wine Summary Image

Our Marlborough vineyards had another warmer and drier season compared to the usual. Average December and January maximums of 28.1 and 25 °C respectively assisted with ensuring crop levels were at their optimum. Although dry, a well-timed rainfall in January allowed the vines to maintain ideal canopy health and continued

fruit development. Cooler February nights ensured that acid levels helped the expression of vibrancy and full fruit flavour in the wines.

Our favourable season resulted in a Harvest period which was warmer and drier (excepting one event in March) than average.

The plentiful crops provided by Mother Nature this year were brought back to moderate levels using various means. This harvest showed some separation between the first sparkling fruit picked on 2nd March, and the beginning of table wine harvest on 29th March. The last fruit was harvested on the 29th of April.

The fruit for this wine was grown on our Squire Estate vineyard, located on Rapaura Road, known as the golden mile.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma and Palate

This wonderful wine greets you with white peach and guava fruits, overlaid with mealy,

smokey spicy oak with hints of flint. The palate is soft, silky and full bodied with sweet tropical fruits, balanced with a savoury buttery after taste.

Food Matches

This is a great match with a slow cooked pork belly, served with creamy mash, and Asian slaw. It would also pair well with soft cheeses, such as Port Salut, Brie or an aged goats cheese.

Winery Profile

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.
