Larose 2019 - 97 points by James Suckling

``One of the best Larose releases in the wine's history, this has a very attractive sense of depth, power and composure. The brand of refinement seen in the finest Bordeaux. Aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant, as well as plum and mulberry, are seasoned with oak spices, leaves and tobacco. The palate has such smoothly groomed tannins and concentrated, fresh, dark-toned berries. There's a lot to like here. Drink or Hold.``

– James Sucking | June 2021

Larose VIP club

The best and most popular way to buy Stonyridge wines (especially Larose) is “en primeur” through our Larose VIP Club subscription service. By joining the Larose VIP Club, you make an annual commitment to buy Larose (minimum 6 bottles), and we commit to supply it. However, due to the vagaries of nature, in some years we may not make Larose (e.g. 1992) or we can only supply half of our clients’ orders (e.g. 2003).

Club benefits include:

– First rights to our limited Larose vintages

– 20% discount every time you dine with us (up to $1000) and 20% off our other wines, including our fallen Angel line

-10% discount for any friends referred

– Invitations to our VIP tastings and our big Larose VIP party

To give our club members the best value, we
sell the wine “en Primeur”:

– We charge your credit card in April, normally at NZ$165* a bottle. (subject to change)

– We deliver the wine in October, when it is worth in excess of NZ$400-600* a bottle.

(* Because we ship all over the world, these prices do not include shipping costs or duties.)
