Description

Stanley Estate wines are the new kids on the block, but they have hit the ground running with a string of awards for their wines already. This 2012 Sauvignon Blanc shows a mineral pureness, of ripe tropical flavours, gooseberries balanced by a lush herbaceousness of capsicum and a hint of citrus fruits.



We cannot recommend this wine enough. Excellent!



Bridget Ennals and Steve Pellett story;

We started work the day we arrived on our new block of bare land in the Awatere Valley in June 2003, planting 7 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 3 hectares of Pinot Noir with Dijon clones in our stony Dashwood loam soils.



Two years later we bought a neighbouring small block called Little Oasis, which was already planted with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. This block has really stony riverbed soils.



In 2006 we transformed another bare land block, just opposite us across the southern side of the Stafford Creek, into Sauvignon Blanc. This we call the SECC block.





We now have 3ha of Pinot Noir, 0.5ha of Chardonnay, 0.5ha Albarino and 13.5ha of Sauvignon Blanc and 2ha of Pinot Gris.
