Sean Connolly Visits Marlborough
Renowned chef and restaurateur, Sean Connolly, is in New Zealand and about to embark on an adventure that will put his wine and food matching skills to the test. First up, he pays us a visit. Upon arriving at Stoneleigh Vineyard in the heart of Marlborough, Sean is greeted by our winemaker, Jamie Marfell. Jamie has some new wild-fermented wines for Sean to try – as well as a few challenges up his sleeve.
The native micro-flora and stony terroir of the Rapaura region in Marlborough allows Stoneleigh Wild Valley wines to develop a wonderful, complex taste, with minimal human intervention. By employing wild fermentation, these textural wines are crisp and vibrant – the perfect partners for food.
