Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a deep, ruby red hue and a fragrant bouquet of black cherry, raspberry and red plums overlaid with integrated oak spice. The palate shows ripe, red berry fruit flavors and lingering fruit sweetness. Tannins are fine and integrated, making the wine immediately approachable.

About Stoneleigh:

Since the launch of the Stoneleigh Vineyard range in 1986, wines from every vintage have won awards. The exceptional success and quality of the range is due to both the unique terroir of the area and the outstanding skills of its winemaker. Stoneleigh Vineyard lies on the banks of the Wairau River in Marlborough. The low yielding stony soils, high hours of sunshine and cool winter months combine to produce a unique microclimate perfect for producing premium wine grapes.
