Stonyridge was referred to as “One of the Top Ten Must Visit Wineries in the World” by Guardian UK and most recently topped the list for the best Cabernet Merlot in The Age/Sydney Morning Herald Good Wine Guide 2013. The Stonyridge Larose 2010 scored 97 points to make it the highest equal scoring red wine in 2013 and finished ahead of all of Australia’s most iconic Cabernet Merlots! Stonyridge Larose is the favourite of the former NZ Prime Minister, Sir John Key and has been enjoyed by King Juan Carlos of Spain and Queen Elizabeth II, the Russian President, the Prime Minister of Australia, and the Prime Minister of Great Britain, and has sold at some of the world’s best restaurants including Ducasse at the Dorchester in London and Viridiana in Madrid. Located on a gently North-Facing Valley 1km from Onetangi Beach, this is a must visit.
