Winemaker's Notes

3 Stones is New Zealand wine emblazoned with a purity of fruit and a sense of place. Falling between the 36th and 45th parallels, the temperate, maritime climate of New Zealand allows long sunshine days that infuse the wines with a distinct and spirited varietal definition. This identity has earned the country a place among the world's notable winegrowing nations.

With grape varieties partnered to vineyards and sensitive winemaking, 3 Stones emerges with all the elements of a modern, enjoyable wine.

This Sauvignon Blanc is a zesty and delicious wine from Marlborough, the famed growing region located on New Zealand's South Island. Flavors of passion fruit and gooseberry combine with mouth-watering acidity, creating a truly refreshing wine.

Richly fruited and tropical, this is a medium-bodied, slightly creamy-textured Marlborough Savvy. Flavors hint at pineapple, honey and stone fruit, yet remain zesty and clean, with a refreshing citrus zing to the finish. Stock up for the summer.- Wine Enthusiast 3-09
