The Stoneleigh vineyard sites are located on the northern side of the Wairau Valley in close proximity to the mighty Wairau river. Often referred to as the ‘Rapaura Series’ of soils, they are characterised as young soils, based on river silts and stones. They tend to be low in nutrients and have poor water-holding capacity. A key feature is the number of smooth sunstones that reflect the sun’s heat onto the grapes, enhancing ripening.
The 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is light straw in colour with subtle green highlights. It displays lifted tropical fruit aromatics, with passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus blossom characters. This follows through to the palate that presents ripe tropical fruit, melon and stone fruit flavours with a complex minerality that is balanced by a tight, fresh acidity. This is a vibrant and lively wine.
