Stonegarden Shiraz 2019

$80.00

Could this be anything other than Barossa Shiraz? One of the world’s most evocative wines, and it doesn’t seem to matter who it’s made by, the strength of Barossa Valley character always shines through. Expressive is an understatement; you can smell it from a dozen yards away. A compote of black, blue and red fruits, with violets, savoury and sweet spice. Rich and full bodied, the tannins polished, running the length of the palate, silk to velvet. At five years old, still in its infancy – all the elements balanced and resolved. Shall be a very long lived wine, just hitting cruise control. Waters Wine Co

 

These vines really struggle. Situated in the ridge above the winery, their twisted and gnarled trunks tell the story of 163 years of hand-pruning, and the ebb and flow of past seasons: droughts, flood, frost and everything in between.

A serious wine from vines planted in 1858 and the 1940s, it is made in open fermenters with a small percentage of whole bunches. Aged in 25% new French oak, it’s one for the cellar – if you’re patient. If you’re not that way inclined and prefer a less mature, more youthful wine, then a splash through the decanter a few hours before serving will do wonders, helping it to stretch and gently unfurl its full potential.
