Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A superb unoaked Marlborough, NZ Sauv Blanc with fragrant tropical guava, passionfruit and citrus on the nose, repeated on the palate with great mouth-watering acidity and crystal-clear fruit flavours on a lingering finish. A mouth full of flavour-my fav kind of SB!
Tasted July 2016
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Looking for great value at an accessible price point, you've found it. The Stoneleigh Latitude is a pale straw 13% ABV single varietal Sauvignon Blanc showing typicity from the famous Marlborough Golden Mile region. Prominent gooseberry fruit, herbaceousness, citrus notes. Well-balanced and vibrant medium plus acidity, medium plus fruit and medium bodied. Persistence of lemon peel, green bean and gooseberry with a long lingering finish. Pair with pan fried lemon drizzled white fish , Asian lemon chicken, or freshly shucked oysters. Ready to enjoy now. @jonsteeves rated 90/100 - tasted May 2016
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The nose has tropical fruit, herb and citrus notes with the palate settling into passion fruit and grapefruit flavors. The wine has a nice acidity and the grapefruit lingers well past the finish.
