Stoneleigh Riesling Marlborough 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Pale yellow with a green tinge. Aromas: Intense lemon lime aromas, with lifted white peach highlights. Hints of clove & cinnamon spice add to the wines aromatic complexity. Palate: Fresh and vibrant, intense nectarine flavours with bursts of citrus fruit, finishing with crisp acidity, a hint of spice and good length.

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.
