Aktionspaket Fl. Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is light straw in colour with green highlights. The nose is pungent with a little mineral flintiness, vibrant fruit intensity and upfront passionfruit aromas carrying through to the palate with underlying tropical and grapefruit notes and a layering of mineral complexity. The palate shows varietal intensity, fresh acidity and lasting fruit flavours.

In Rapaura, Marlborough there lies a vineyard studded with precious stones. Once the bed of an ancient river, today they form the bed of our vineyard. We call them sunstones.  During the day, the sunstones reflect the brilliant Marlborough sunshine up into the vines and grapes. Bathed with heat from above and below, the grapes gradually ripen and their beautifully rich flavour intensifies.  Starved of moisture and struggling to grow in the stony soil, the vines concentrate their efforts into producing a few precious grapes, with the cool Marlborough nights locking the crisp, concentrated flavour inside. What the vines lack in quantity of fruit, they more than make up for in quality.  The result is a rare wine; elegant and crisp, yet intense - the magical taste of Stoneleigh. Read less

Very pale color. Subtle aromas of grapefruit, licorice and white pepper. In a juicy, fruity, lean style, with good cut to its ripe citrus flavor. Solidly made, fresh sauvignon with a crisp grapefruity finish.

Light-bodied, but not light on flavor, this white shows green apple, melon and citrus notes that are balanced and focused, with a grassy side and refreshing acidity. Drink now.

The wine is light straw in color with subtle green highlights. This wine displays lifted passion fruit and white fleshed nectarine aromatics, with grapefruit and subtle sweaty notes.
