Stonewell is about the pedigree of these sites and the knowledge which has been passed from each generation of growers to the next. An assemblage of parcels from grand old Barossa districts, around a core of fruit from the estate vineyad on Stonewell Road in Marananga. Grapes are macerated on skins for up to a fortnight before a course of barrel ferments, a small batch basket press and clarification, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of French oak hogsheads. Alcohol 14.5%
    Dense black centre with a deep garnet rim. Bouquet of dark chocolate and black forest fruits with hints of mint. A wine of great dignity, its structure is superbly taut, exhibiting intense depth of fruit reined in by firm tannins. Made in strictly limited quantities, a wine for posterity. Savour with rich game dishes, roast beef and hard cheese.
