Description

Peter Lehmann’s Stonewell Shiraz hails from the fruit of South Australia’s Barossa Valley.

This limited release Stonewell shows a deep, black centre with loads of dark, plummy fruit and a touch of chocolate and aniseed. The palate is richly structured with fine tannins and a long, persistent finish ensuring that the wine will drink beautifully over the next 5-10 years.

The name Stonewell was chosen in recognition of the high quality shiraz grapes being grown around Stonewell Road in the Marananga district of the Barossa. While the winery owns a vineyard called Stonewell in this district, the grapes for Stonewell Shiraz are not limited to this one vineyard and come from individual growers in a number of Barossa sub-districts, particularly those to the west and the north where hard dry soils give rise to low-yielding shiraz of great quality.

97 – James Halliday, The Wine Companion

“Has retained exceptional deep crimson-purple colour; as the time perspective increases, so does the stature of the ’12 vintage, and its longevity. Here an ocean of full-bodied black fruits has tides of tannins and quality oak all playing off and enhancing each other on the prodigiously long palate.”

97 – Natalie MacLean

“Exceptional from start to finish. Still tarry and young, needing cellar time, but it’s smokin’ hot already. Stonewell selects its exceptional fruit from a sub-region of the western Barossa Valley, from vines that were planted in 1885, the oldest in the region. The 2012 vintage is a powerful one that has a long life ahead of it.”
