2016 Stonewell ShirazCurator Wine
Belonging to the original Curator range, this wine was created to be reflect the differences in our Barossa vineyard locations and their unique micro climates. This Stone Well Shiraz was picked in the cool of the early morning, open fermented and basket pressed into only French oak. 60-70% new with the remaining percentage aged in second fill oak for 24 months. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
97 Points – Sam Kim February 2019 – A glorious rendition; the magnificently complex bouquet shows black/blueberry, dark cherry, violet, dark chocolate and cedary wood characters, followed by a sumptuous palate that displays outstanding depth and intensity. The wine offers layers of rich texture and delectable flavours, wonderfully framed by silky tannins. At its best: 2020 to 2032.
