Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Rapaura Series 2010
The wine is light straw in colour with green highlights. This wine displays vibrant fruit intensity. Ripe grapefruit, citrus and passionfruit fruit flavours dominate, and to layer over this is an added mineral complexity. The palate shows balance, both ripe flavours and fresh acidity.
The wine was very fruity and sprakling. The taste was very sweet like peach.

Starts off with great citrus flavors of apricot and grapefruit in the nose and front of the palate. Yet, it finishes in a completely different style of a nice soothing spice. Perfect for a relaxing summer night out on the porch.
Completely Marlborough in its green scent of lime zest and lime flowers, this is powered with rustic green acidity, like artichoke. Match its limey fruit with chicken in a Thai green curry.
