2016 Stonewell Shiraz

$100.00

Bottle

In the beginning we made just one Shiraz, the grape variety that has defined the Barossa as one of the world's great wine regions. But we knew Shiraz that came from some vineyards was better than others - smaller, deeper in colour and more intensely flavoured - 'Little Black Jewels' we called them. For over 20 years, Stonewell has been lauded as one of Australia's greatest wines and one of the world's greatest Shiraz.

Full bodied, classic Stonewell with massive density and length. Classic blue and black fruits with ironstone and graphite tannins. A long life ahead, one of the all-time classic Stonewell’s. Enjoy now or cellar until 2046.
