Stoneleigh Marlborough Riesling 2021/2023 750ML

Fruit for this wine was harvested from March through to April. The fruit was destemmed and crushed to bag presses with the juice being drained quickly to avoid phenolic pick-up from the skins. The juice was then clarified and inoculated with selected aromatic yeast strains and fermented at low temperatures to retain the aromatic qualities of the fruit. Ferments were then stopped a little early to retain a little natural residual sugar to balance the beautiful tight acidity typical of this variety.


This wine displays aromas of lifted citrus blossom, limes, crab apples and apricots following through to a grapefruit palate with flinty material undertones and a limey backbone. This is a beautifully balanced wine.

Alc: 11.3%
