    Winemaker Notes

    In this wine, quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon character leaps from the glass. Lifted, complex aromas of fresh asparagus stem, lime citrus and sunshine-warmed grass clippings are contrasted by the less dominant, yet exotic notes of tree-ripened grapefruit. In the mouth, the palate is instantly rich and mouth-filling before the juicy acidity tightens the palate, refreshes the mouth and provides the vehicle for a long, fine, flavor-packed finish.

    Try with twice baked goat cheese souffle.

    3 Stones, New Zealand
    3 Stones Winery Image
    The story of 3 stones begins in 2002, when our vineyards in Marlborough, New Zealand produced their first crop. Just before harvest, over a couple of glasses of wine, we talked about the pioneering heritage of our forefathers and the true spirit of New Zealand. Our stunning land was discovered by incredibly skilled Polynesian sailors and later shaped by brave settlers, who had travelled halfway across the planet to farm and to raise children.

    The conversation turned to the time when the world was torn apart by war. Though we were far from the front lines, our young men went to fight for freedom. Upon their return, the world had changed, and some were unable to find permanent work. They travelled from farm to farm, seeking what work they could. As a signal to those who might follow, when they left a farm where the food was good and the pay fair, they would make a small stack of stones on a fencepost at the farm gate.

    We celebrate that tradition with our name, 3 stones and we salute all of those who have gone before, who made it possible for us to work the soil under clear skies.

    New Zealand

    An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

    The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

    Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
