Stonecroft was the first winery to be established in the Gimblett Gravels. Stonecroft produces only a very small quantity of wine, using traditional methods. The winery produced the first commercial Syrah in New Zealand and later the first Zinfandel. It is well known for its Syrah, Zinfandel, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnnay wines. Stonecroft's approach one of minimal intervention. Pruning and harvesting are carried out by hand. Only organic practices are used and yields are very low. The wines are intense, full-bodied, elegant and fruit-driven, but capable of significant bottle development. Stonecroft's philsophy is one of quality without compromise.
Wines they produce are: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Blends, Syrah and Gewürztraminer.
The tasting will be followed by a two course meal.
