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.

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

I tasted this wine on a trip to new zealand and i have to say it is the most incredible sauv i've evr tasted. when jesus turned water into wine, this is what it tasted like! it's lush yet light, fragrant yet not overwhelming, and encompasses all that a great sauv should have. buy at least 2 bottles because the first will be gone before you know it.

I liked this wine when I visited New Zealand in 2007. Back home in Canada I sampled two bottles. One I liked, it had a very fine bouguet. But the second bottle had a very strong taste that I can't quite pin down. Very unpleasant. The bottles contained an ink stamp in the base as follows: 23-09039 14:40 the better tasting wine 23-09039 14:39 the not so good wine Were they from the same batch? Why the difference in taste?
