Aromas of gooseberry, fresh herbs and fresh-cut grass with slight nettle notes. A refreshing wine with fruit flavours of crab apple, quince and white peach. Hints of passionfruit lend a slightly sweet fruit note while vegetal aspects of artichoke give the wine a complex and interesting flavour profile. A medium-bodied wine with light acidity and a fine long finish. 12.5% Alcohol.
The Stoney Range 2019 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in the heart of the Waipara Valley on our Stirling, Church Road and Georges Road vineyards. The extended growing season of warm, fine days and cool nights ensured the fruit was harvested in excellent condition early April 2019. Following harvest, the fruit was gently pressed, settled and racked to fermentation. The juice was then cool fermented for 21 days and left on lees contact for a further two months prior to blending, light fining, filtering and bottling.

"Attractively fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows feijoa, kiwifruit, Granny Smith apple and lemon peel characters. The palate is equally appealing with vibrant fruit intensity and zesty acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering. "
