92 POINTS-JamesSuckling.com, 2018 VINTAGE: 2017
This single vineyard range takes the best elements of Stoneleigh and adds in a number of extra dimensions resulting in refined, premium quality wines with more complexity which deliver the most intense expression of Marlborough. This range takes its name from the distinctive stony soils on which the Stoneleigh vineyards are located.
AROMA AND PALATE
The wine shows layers with initial perfumed vanilla notes that opens to have Black Doris plum and vibrant blackberry notes. Toasty oak also features. The palate is savoury, rich and warm and inviting with perfumed dark brooding fruit, blackberry and black doris plum flavours, with finely integrated charry oak. Layers of complexity coupled with finely textured silky tannins round off the palate.
