About Our Ratings

Stoneleigh 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, NZ
The Stoneleigh vineyard in Marlborough, New Zealand is a very unique place. Itís the site of an ancient river bed and so the soil is not so much earth as it is stones with bits of dirt around them. Itís a very inhospitable piece of land for growing anything, which is of course what makes it ideal for wine grapes. The vines struggle for moisture and nutrients, sending their roots down deep. This creates low yields and more complex flavors. Meanwhile the stones absorb sunlight all day long and reflect heat back on the vines at night tempering the very cool night air and letting grapes achieve ideal ripeness. The result is Sauvignon Blanc with full flavors and nuances. Ferment in stainless steel and only lightly fined for intense fruit and mineral flavors. This wine scored 87 points from the International Wine Cellar who said "Very pale color. Subtle aromas of grapefruit, licorice and white pepper. In a juicy, fruity, lean style, with good cut to its ripe citrus flavor. Solidly made, fresh sauvignon with a crisp grapefruity finish."
