Stoneburn Vineyard was established in the heart of Marlborough’s famous Wairau Valley in 1989 on a stony riverbed site. Named after the owners’ Scottish heritage, the vineyard has gone from strength to strength in terms of production and quality.
Stoneburn wines are made by their world-class winemaker, James Macdonald. James grew up amongst the vineyards and wineries. It was a natural progression for him to move into the winemaking field after his family’s involvement in the industry for three generations.
Pale lemon coloured, the nose is powerful and exotic, with gooseberry, passion fruit and elderflower notes. The palate is medium to full bodied, with very intense tropical fruit blending with greener notes of capsicum. The finish is ripe, crisp and long.
Try with lobster, freshly sliced vine tomatoes or a fresh herb salad
