Stonehaven Limited Vineyard Release Shiraz (Wrattonbully) 2021


From a single vineyard in the Wrattonbully region, the grapes underwent pre-fermentation maceration, extended skin contact and barrel fermentation. Dark garnet in colour with aromas weaving through warm earth, animal skins, spices, chocolate and truffles with dark berries throughout nose and palate and a light touch of oak, good focus and line. Mid-length with bright acidity, this is nicely balanced. The wine has serious promise and will continue to drink well for the next four to eight years.
