A zesty, medium-bodied, unoaked New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of freshly cut grass and lime. Herbal on the palate with lots of acidity. Pair with shellfish.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Andrea Shapiro - Andreas Wine Cellar rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon colour with layered grassy and fruity aromas. Citrus, starfruit, limestone, wet rock, hay, asparagus, grass, gooseberry and a strong “cats pee” element present! Typical for NZ Sauve. Flavours encompass crisp green apple, cucumber, yellow pepper, guava and spicy green chive heat at the back with some steely rocky, salty minerals. Medium plus acidity, light body and finish. Pair with arugula artichoke salad and dill fennel stuffed trout. 88 points - tasted November 2017
Stoneleigh Latitude (2017) is a medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, South Island. Look for green herbs, gooseberry and guava wrapped up in zesty citrus on the nose and palate. The Stoneleigh Vineyard is on the northern side of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough. The area is known locally as the "Golden Mile" of vineyards. This wine won Gold, InterVin International Wine Awards, 2016. - Community Wine Reviews
