Description

Sherwood Estate's Stoney Range is produced to be expressive and classic with a modern, immediately enjoyable twist. This Sauvignon Blanc adds the slightest touch of Riesling and uses Wairapa Valley grapes carefully fermented with various yeast strains, before remaining on lees for two months with weekly battonage for desired texture. Blending is masterful, with up to 40 different portions tasted and evaluated for perfection before bottling. 

Straw yellow in appearance, it shows immediate tropical fruit aromas that fill the juicy palate alongside hints of asparagus. Excellent minerality makes for a refreshingly crisp and tangy mouthfeel with a lengthy, citrus finish. Try with seafood, salads, or mild cheeses. 

The Sherwood family are true pioneers of the New Zealand's Waipara Valley, having worked the land for over 30 years to fully realise its potential. Their winery is accredited under Sustainable Winegrowers guidelines and actually exceeds exacting standards, with continual improvement.  All Estate production and processing is done at the Waipara winery, from fruit reception, crushing, pressing, fermentation, racking, filtering, bottling and dispatch.
