Winery: "Shimmering in the glass bright greens and soft shards of gold entice a crisp first sip. Plentiful sunshine and long balmy days fill the palate with lime juice, kiwi fruit and passionfruit flavours. Fresh zesty acids dart between these Marlborough tastes bringing this superb savvy to life." Try it with coriander steamed mussels and crusty bread.
Wired For Wine: The texture, balance and harmony of the 3 Stones Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc combined with its light, fragrant nature and fruit make it the perfect companion for countless vegetables, herbs, fish and chicken concoctions. Where to begin? The 3 Stones is a lovely, refreshing aperitif on its own, or with a big bowl of just-made guacamole. If you're heading directly into the meal, we suggest a puree of asparagus soup. Because it works so well with herbs and herb sauces, a terrific vegetarian option is linguine with pesto. This Sauvignon Blanc is great at showcasing pure ingredients; we love it with a simply grilled fresh swordfish steak. This 3 Stones' bright, clean persona allows it to counter cream and butter brilliantly. Whip up some creamy, garlic-smashed potatoes to that end, and serve them with an indulgent platter of fried chicken. Delicious. And finally, the bone dry palate of this wine makes it a natural with many cheeses. Open another bottle and settle in with one or our favorites, a French goat's milk cheese, Chabichou du Poitou. Welcome to Heaven, Mates!
