Stonehorse Shiraz is full of character, a reference to the teams of Clydesdale horses which worked the heavy clay soils of Kaesler vineyard. Grapes are all hand picked and vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeasts for a healthy ferment. Ten days skin contact and regular pumpovers twice daily are aimed at optimal extraction. Batches are pressed and settled for a day before being run to a selection of oak barriques. Upon completion of malolactic, barrels are racked off lees and returned for fifteen months maturation, infusing just the right amount of oak while encouraging fruit to dominate. Bottled after a light filtration, a youthful old vine Shiraz with superb structure, definition and refinement.
Inky bright crimson, dark centre and youthful edge. Black cherries, fruits of the forest, spice and hints of cassis. A full bodied wine, supple, elegant mouth feel, dark fruit flavours, blackberries and blueberry with lighter red fruits, currants and plum. Spicy notes, spicebox and liquorice mingle on the palate, supported by ripe tannins over a background of genteel oak.
