Stonyridge Winery – Waiheke Island, New Zealand

Home to the Stonyridge flagship wine, Larose.  This is a classic Cabernet dominant blend named “as a tribute to the rose, the most aromatic, intense and beautiful of all flowers.”

The vineyard site was chosen specifically to produce Bordeaux style of wine. The gentle north-facing slopes of the vineyard are sheltered from the cold southwesterly winds by the ridge which gives the vineyard its name. Summer temperatures regularly reach over 85°F with the highest temperature being 97°F. Combined with north-facing rows and excellent viticulture, the grapes achieve perfect ripeness in normal years.
