Stanley Estates 2015 Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino

13-Jan-2016
Bridget Ennals and Steve Pellet established their Stanley Estates Awatere Valley vineyards venture with their home site in 2003. Following that they purchased an established site, named ‘Little Oasis’ in 2005 and established a new vineyard named the ‘SECC’ block in 2006. Across the three sites, they have 12.5 ha of Sauvignon Blanc, 3 ha of Pinot Noir, 2.2 ha of Pinot Gris, 1.2 ha Albarino, 1 ha Lagrein and 0.3 ha Chardonnay. They have Jeremy Hyland overseeing the viticulture and Eveline Fraser as winemaker. Here, I review the new release 2015 Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino, the latter variety making a name for Stanley Estates from the inaugural 2012 vintage. www.stanleyestates.co.nz
