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

A whiff of fresh herb notes gives way to juicy lemon, lime and orange zest flavors, with a refreshing, racy acidity. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported. -MW The wine is light straw in colour with subtle green highlights. This wine displays lifted white-fleshed nectarine and tropical fruit aromatics with grapefruit and subtle sweaty notes. The palate shows balance, with ripe melon and stone fruit flavours and a complex minerality balanced by a tight, fresh acidity. This is a vibrant and lively wine. - Winery
