Stoneleigh Chardonnay

Product description

The Stoneleigh range consists of distinctive, elegant, fruit-forward Marlborough wines that reflect the unique terroir of our stone-studded vineyards. Started by nature and finished by the talents of the Stoneleigh winemakers, our philosophy of minimum intervention in the winery ensures that the vibrant flavours of Stoneleigh are captured in each and every bottle.

This light straw coloured wine wine displays ripe stonefruit and pear aromas with hints of toasty oak. The palate shows fresh nectarine and hints of citrus, with warm nutty notes. The texture is creamy with good palate weight due to the lees- aged barrel component. The fruit and oak elements are well integrated leading to a supple, balanced wine with a cleansing acidity and soft mineral finish.

The palate shows textural weight and balance with a soft, creamy finish, and all the flavours are bound together with well-structured and well-integrated layers of oak complexity.

This versatile wine will work equally well as an aperitif, served with mixed toasted nuts and olives, or dishes such as roast chicken with apricot stuffing, prawn risotto with shaved parmesan, or grilled salmon with macadamia crust.
