Stoneleigh Marlborough Chardonnay
Marlborough
Available by the dozen
The unique terrains upon which the Stoneleigh Vineyards lie, impart distinctive qualities into the wines. Located on the northern side of Wairau Valley, in close proximity to Marlborough's main river, the growers have established sites on deep, infertile gravel beds, covered by smooth sunstones. These polished stones reflect the sun's heat during the day, assisting ripening, whilst radiating heat throughout the cool of night. True to the Stoneleigh style, this classic, elegant Chardonnay delivers bright varietal fruit and captures the essence of Marlborough.

Marlborough's Rapaura soils are geologically young and based on river silts and stones. The effects of sun and soil are retained throughout the vinification to produce a wine with its own unique sense of place. Chardonnay clones Mendoza, 6, 95 and 15 are harvested at the peak of intensity. Only the first cut pressings are included for a course of oak barrel and fermenters. Most of the wine completes malolactic to lower acidity and add textural creaminess. Batches are lees stirred several months and fined using low rates of isinglass before a final assemblage based on palate freshness and softness. Most components are matured in a mix of French and Hungarian oak barriques or larger format vats. Alcohol 13.7%
 
Light straw colour. Stoneleigh exudes intense white stonefruit aromatics in balance with toasty barrel notes. Bouquets of peaches and nectarine with hints of grapefruit and citrus, overlaid by sweet toasty oak. The palate is soft, exhibiting good textural weight, balancing fruit with the creaminess of barrel ferment and lees ageing. The richness is balanced by a backbone of acidity leaving the palate with lifted clean fruit flavours.
Stoneleigh Marlborough Pinot Gris
Marlborough
Available by the dozen
True to Stoneleigh's distinctive style, this flavoursome Pinot Gris captures the essence of Marlborough, a unique terroir which gives rise to the wine's quality.

Completely unwooded and unoaked, Stoneleigh is bottled young to capture the fresh aromatics of Marlborough Pinot Gris.

From grapes grown close to the mighty Wairau River, conditions can extend the hang time of fruit on the vine enabling it to reach maximum flavour intensity, creating a wine with fine aromatics and palate richness. The grapes are harvested once a desired concentration is reached and berry shrivel has begun. Fruit is crushed through a bag press, juices are drained and pressed from skins to minimise excessive phenolic extraction, then settled to remove solids. Juices are slowly fermented by choice aromatic yeasts at cool temperatures, to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal character. Stoneleigh remains on yeast lees for a spell before receiving a light fining and filtering prior to bottling. Alcohol 13.9%
 
Rich, straw colours with yellow highlights. Complex nose, warm and rich with poached pear and lifted citrus blossom complemented by rock melon. The full bodied and rich palate offers lingering tropical fruit flavours of melons, pineapple and mango finishing with a lasting complex oiliness that coats the mouth.

Stoneleigh's vineyards are covered with smooth stones which reflect the sun's rays, enhancing the ripening process by day, whilst retaining warmth throughout the cool Marlborough nights. Clonally the Sauvignon Blanc is mainly mass selected on a mix of five main rootstocks these being SO4 and 3309, 101/14, RG and Schwarzmann. Grapes are harvested and treated to bag presses or tippy tanks. Juices are drained and pressed from skins to minimise excessive phenolic extraction, followed by a settling to remove solids. The bright, clear juices are then racked to inoculation by select aromatic yeast and fermentation at cool temperatures to retain the distinctive regional and varietal characters.
 
Light straw hues, subtle greens. Pungent sweaty aromas, lifted tropical fruit aromatics, passionfruits and ruby grapefruit most dominant. The palate features ripe melon and stone fruit flavours, complex minerality balanced by a tight, fresh acidity, a vibrant and lively wine. Best enjoyed while young and exuberant, slightly chilled with delicate white meat or the freshest seafood.
The dedicated vignerons of the Stoneleigh team work closely with the Stoneleigh winemakers to develop perfectly balanced, ripe flavoursome fruit unique to the Rapaura region of Marlborough

On the site of a former riverbed at the northern side of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley in New Zealand, the Stoneleigh range takes it name from the abundance of stones that cover the area. The exceptional quality of the wines owes much to these stones. These stones reflect heat up onto the vines enhancing the ripening process and within the soil create the ideal growing environment. Located in the heart of Rapaura area and the locally known Golden Mile of vineyards the Stoneleigh Vineyard,178 ha, is on the northern side of the Wairau Valley, within 2 km of the Wairau River and the Richmond Ranges. The vineyard has a range of soil types but includes more of the typically stony and recent riverbed soils.

Stoneleigh's award winning history came into being after only a decade of winemaking at the Marlborough estate. Stoneleigh Marlborough Chardonnay 1996 was named White Wine of the Year at the 1998 International Wine Challenge in London. This highly prestigious accolade was followed by two successive vintages of Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc collecting Best Buy recommendations from Wine Spectator USA. the run of shw successes continued when Stoneleigh Marlborough Riesling 1999 collected Gold at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards, and sibling Stoneleigh Marlborough Pinot Noir 1999 claimed Silver, at the same event.

Stoneleigh Rapaura Series Marlborough Chardonnay 1999 won a highly prestigious Blue-Gold Medal at the Sydney International Wine Challenge and Gold Merdal at Intervin. Stoneleigh Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2000, followed up with a stunning Gold Medal win, Champion Sauvignon Blanc Trophy and Champion Commercial White Wine Trophy at the Air New Zealand Awards. The same wine also claimed Gold at New Zealand’s Liquorland Top 100 competition. The lineage of highly acclaimed releases have continued, the Rapaura Series Marlborough Pinot Gris claimed another Blue-Gold and Top 100 Award for Stoneleigh at the Sydney International Wine Competition.

The Stoneleigh winemaking style is a direct reflection of the unique characteristics of the terroir. Winemaker Jamie Marfell, aims to maximise these unique flavours inherent in the fruit and deliver a wine of exquisite quality and style. The unique stony free draining alluvial soils, together with the slightly warmer climatic conditions of the Rapaura area, produces fruit that ripens earlier than other regions of Marlborough. These grapes have a ripe fruit spectrum which is distinctive in style and quality compared with grapes from other parts of Marlborough and New Zealand.

A minimalist winemaking approach is carried through all stages of winemaking and only subtle intervention is employed to add complexity and enhance the fruit’s unique characteristics. By only using premium juice, the wine has concentrated flavour, finesse and bright fruit expression. The yeast selected for fermentation is chosen to complement and lift the expression of terrior. Finally, the wines are very lightly fined before bottling to give clarity of flavour and style. And the result - aromatic, elegant Marlborough wines that are a true expression of their terroir.
