The Strathbogie Ranges are inland, cool and elevated, characterised by ancient granite boulders. The soils are typically sandy clay loam overlying orange clays of varying depths. Shiraz is sourced from a number of blocks from within the Whitegate and Upton Run properties to increase complexity. Grapes are harvested and crushed, inoculated to a Cote du Rhone isolate yeast and vinified at 23ËšC to 28ËšC in high tech sweep arm fermenters to maximise colour and flavour intensity while preserving primary fruit flavours. Upon completion, the finished wine is matured in a mix of American and French new oak barrels and older 300 litre oak hogsheads.
A deep, dark red. Aromas of dark chocolate, red fruits and that characteristic pepper and spice from the Strathbogie Ranges. Big, rich and dense with lovely fine grained tannins. Stone Dwellers is pleasingly dry, has balanced alcohol, graceful tannins and refreshing acids. A medium to full bodied wine with structure and very good length, ideally suited to seared beef with kipflers & redwine jus.
