The Stonehorse wines are vinified to make styles that emphasise fruit characteristics with complementary barrel maturation.
The oak is designed to support and add structure to the palate without compromising the drink ability of the wine. They are wines that are made to be enjoyed while in their youth.

This wine speaks of the brilliance of the 2002 vintage in McLaren Vale. Coating tannins, excellent length, concentrated and complex palate - plums, spice and dark fruits abound.
Medium ruby. Assertive, high-toned red berry aromas are complemented by anise, coconut, violet and rose. Quite suave in texture, with bright, sweet flavors of raspberry, cherry, violet pastille and candied licorice.
There's nice lift and energy to the finish, which shows clear raspberry and cherry flavors that really cling to the palate.
Deep black core with an intense purple rim. The nose shows great intensity of blackberries and plum with a cedar dark chocolate edge. A seamless full bodied palate showing a complex kaleidoscope of black fruits that are not intrusive but mingle harmoniously with the subtleties of the oak.
This wine possesses elegance and fruit purity; the tannins are evident but well balanced producing a ‘silk pillow’ mouth feel that is long and persistent.
Old Vine Shiraz is a wine that will never be overtly fruity. It is best suited to those who prefer a savoury style. We are very happy with this wine and it will be fascinating watching this one age, it should go the distance.
