AWRI 796 produces above average amounts of glycerol, which contributes a sweetness and roundness to the mouthfeel. Parcels were treated to vinification in high tech sweep-arm fermenters to maximise colour and flavour intensity. Ferments were kept at a temperature controlled 25˚C to preserve primary fruit flavours. Stone Dwellers is matured in small one year old, mostly French oak barrels with a smaller percentage of American oaks.
