The 2008 vintage was a fantastic grape growing year for the wines of Stoneleigh. Periodic rainfall events throughout summer
gave strong vine health, boosting what is needed on our stony, gravelly vineyards. Starting harvest in late March, the fruit was
in premium condition with intense flavors and balanced acidity. Making picking decisions based on flavor, I was able to target
passionfruit and grapefruit flavors, minimising the greener notes. The resultant wine is a true expression of the Rapaura region with
strong aromatics, an intense palate and clean, fresh acidity.
