    Winemaker Notes

    True to Stoneleigh style, this soft, supple Pinot Noir captures the essence of Marlborough, New Zealand's most acclaimed winemaking region. This fragrant, well-integrated Pinot Noir has been crafted from small, concentrated grapes with classic Marlborough Pinot Noir flavors.

    Color: Deep ruby red

    Aromas: Fragrant bouquet of black cherry, raspberry, red plums overlaid with savory toasty spice.

    Palate: Ripe dark red berry fruit flavors dominate the palate. This wine is soft and supple with lingering fruit sweetness balanced by fine integrated tannins.

    Best enjoyed with succulent red meat dishes such as spring lamb, duck, game or veal. Dishes featuring mushrooms and red berry fruit will also complement this Pinot Noir beautifully.

    This wine may be enjoyed now but will continue to develop with careful cellaring for up to five years.

    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.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
