Stonecroft is a small, family owned winery making organic Gimblett Gravels wines in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. The owners are Dermot McCollum and Andria Monin, who live on the Roy’s Hill vineyard
Originally, this wine was the first to be made with fruit from the Mere Road and Roy’s Hill vineyards. Before 1876, the Ngaruroro River took a bend around Roy’s Hill through what is now our Roy’s Hill Vineyard. The color displays a deep ruby red, while the aromatics reflect red and black fruit of plum, rhubarb and blackcurrant. The palate contiues with red fruit, however a touch of ceder and leather give into a warm earthiness.
