Stoneleigh Rapaura Series Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

Labelled as 'the absolute best of Stoneleigh', this richly flavoured, single-vineyard wine is grown in the relatively warm, shingly soils of the Rapaura district and partly fermented in large oak cuves. The 2020 vintage (5*) is a powerful wine, weighty and sweet-fruited, with ripe, tropical fruit flavours, deep and dry, that build to a lasting finish. Currently delicious, it’s a classic example of the mid Wairau Valley style.
