Stoneleigh Lighter Sauvignon Blanc
Enjoy this fresh and zingy wine either on it’s own or served with a variety of simple dishes. Try clean Japanese flavours of sushi and sashimi, or BBQ veggie skewers with halloumi, courgette and aubergine. Other fresh cheeses such as a mild goat’s or buffalo mozzarella in a herb-laced salad will be superb.
This wine opens with bright aromas of grapefruit and capsicum, which follow through to the palate, joined by gooseberry, passionfruit and lime flavours. The wine is resfreshingly dry, yet soft and approachable; light in body and big on flavour, with crisp lime notes lasting long on the finish.
The fruit for this wine was picked from our Stoneleigh Vineyards when flavour intensity was at peak, while sugar levels still low, to produce this lighter style wine. The grapes were swiftly bag pressed, and the juice clarified before fermentation. The winemaking took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains, to preserve all the pure fruit aromas naturally present in the juice. The wine was blended and filtered before bottling.
