What was once an ancient stony riverbed has, over time, become much more. The distinctive stone-studded Rapaura soils of our vineyards create a wine style that is fresh, crisp and vibrant – the flavour of Stoneleigh. For thousands of years, the Wairau River ran through what are now our vineyards, depositing stones of all sizes. Today our Stoneleigh vines are planted among these stones, which we call sunstones. These sunstones capture heat throughout the day and release it on to the vines to help develop rich, intense flavours in our grapes. 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.

Made from grapes sourced from the ‘Golden Mile’, a strip of land covered with ancient sunstones and highly regarded for its outstanding grape-growing conditions. The resulting wines are aromatically lifted and riper in spectrum, a result of higher concentration of the stones in the area and the effect these have on the vines. Available in Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Rosè, Pinot Noir and Merlot.
This single vineyard range combines the best quality fruit from low cropping vines with delicate winemaking expertise, to craft wines that reflect the unique terroir of our signature Stoneleigh vineyard.
