Wine is a great complement to any fabulous dinner party, but choosing a wine that your guests will love can be tricky. If you’re looking to impress, look no further than Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

What makes Stoneleigh so unique?

The Stoneleigh vineyard is located in the beautiful Wairau Valley in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. The vineyard is on the site of an ancient riverbed of stones that inspired its name. The sun warms these river stones scattered across the vineyards during the day, and keeps the vines warm after nightfall. This enhances the ripening process and gives Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc its distinctive and crisp style with lovely passionfruit and grapefruit aromas.

Stoneleigh is inspired by the wonders of nature as its wines are started by nature and finished by the talents of the winemakers. The philosophy of minimum intervention in the winery ensures that the vibrant flavours are captured in each and every bottle.

Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc is best enjoyed young and chilled. It is delicious as an aperitif or alongside a variety of foods such as goat cheese, delicate herbed salads, and seafood. Celebrity Chef Mark McEwan is a fan of Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc due to its versatility in matching with different types of foods.

Inspired by the wonders of nature, Stoneleigh and Mark McEwan are teaming up to offer a once-in-a-lifetime dinner for one lucky winner and 5 friends with McEwan at his Georgian Bay cottage.*
