Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Pinot Noir has a deep, ruby red hue with a fragrant bouquet of red plums, raspberry and black cherry overlaid with integrated oak spice. The palate shows ripe, red berry fruit and cherry flavors with a lingering fruit sweetness. Tannins are fine and integrated, making the wine immediately approachable.

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. This wine is designed for immediate enjoyment but will reward patient cellaring of up to five years.

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.
