    Winemaker Notes

    True to Stoneleigh's distinctive style, this classic, lively Sauvignon Blanc captures the essence of Marlborough, New Zealand's most acclaimed winemaking region. Crafted from ripe, intensely flavored grapes, this full bodied Sauvignon Blanc is enjoyable while young and exuberant.

    Color: Pale straw

    Aromas: This wine is a ripe, full-bodied Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that displays lifted passionfruit and grapefruit aromas, with overlaying mineral notes. The passion fruit and grapefruit characters are indicative of ripe Sauvignon Blanc from the Rapaura soils, and minerality is a fermentation complexity from the stony river bed terrior.

    Palate: The palate displays tropical, passion fruit and citrus flavors. These flavors have been emphasized by the winemaker by controlling skin contact time and matching yeast to best emphasize the wine's terrior. The wine has tightness and concentration of flavor that is balanced by natural fresh acidity.

    Serving suggestions: Serve slightly chilled on its own or with delicate white meat and seafood dishes.

    Cellaring: This wine is best enjoyed young and exuberant, or could be cellared over the next two years.

    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 Jamie Marfell and Vineyard Manager Rod Brailsford. 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.

    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.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
