``Stonyridge Follows French Traditions Unapologetically... For The Stonyridge '96 ToMake The Top Three With Latour When French Judges Decided On The Best Wines Of The World``
Wine & Dine (June/july 1999)
This classic Cabernet-dominant blend is named Larose as a tribute to the rose, the most aromatic, colourful, intense, and beautiful of all flowers.
New Zealand’s first Rhone Ranger wine, made with the classic ”GSM” (Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah) varieties of the south of France.
Malbec’s inherent weakness is that it can overcrop and become diluted and flabby. But our steep northeast-facing slope and low cropping produces a “Black Moon” Malbec that is thoroughbred.
Airfield is the second label of Larose. We produce this mid-price Bordeaux-style red when the vintage is not up to the ultra-premium levels of the Stonyridge label.
Nestled in a shimmering valley of olive trees, colourful vines, and the aromas of the south of France, our Veranda Café is one of the most romantic and exotic venues in New Zealand for café dining, private functions, and weddings.
Stonyridge wine yard is located on Waiheke Island, a luxurious 35-minute ferry cruise from downtown Aukland, New Zealand.
