Stonyridge Vineyard, "Coeur De Leon", Waiheke Island - 2017

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

Petit Verdot was first introduced into New zealand in 1985 by Stephen White and Dr Tony Molloy QC. Fortiuitously, it has become one of the great varities in our vineyard at Stonyridge, with the small berry size and thick skins giving structure and intensity in every vintage. The wines produced from these grapes are known for their intensity, florality and earthiness along with a tight tannin structure and masses of dark fruit in the mid-palate.

Coeur de Lion was born from this serendipity and is so called in honour of Morris the beloved vineyard cat with the heart of a lion who passed away in 2017. He was as strong and characterful as the wine named after him. The name also respects the vineyard's ability to grow the greatest wine in the most challenging of vintages.

Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Carmenere.
