Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture.

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west.

Usually no more than a dozen small, very mature vineyards are selected each year, the oldest planted in 1885. The berries are small and sparse with crops typically less than 1½ tons an acre. 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.
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.
