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.

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

Outstanding full ripe fruit with a wonderful balance on the palate and a lingering clean finnish. Classy fruit with strong stone fruit and necterines with a hint of grassyness

Great fruity wine, but not too strong.

This wine is one of the best wines I have ever tasted among whites. It has a slightly floral and citrusy flavour, Not too sweet and not too dry. Delicious on it's own or with a meal. Most wines I find I have to drink with a meal to enjoy but this one is also great by itself.
