An elevated Eden Valley wine, full-bodied and rich. This Shiraz, with its dark berry flavours, delicate tannins, and luscious, mineral-driven finish, embodies the distinct terroir of one of the oldest vineyards in South Australia.

 

Origins

Established in 1857, the Stonegarden vineyard is one of South Australia's oldest and most storied vineyards, playing a significant role in the region's winemaking heritage. Nestled in the elevated Eden Valley at 365 metres above sea level, the vineyard's ancient vines, some dating back to 1858, and others from the 1940s, thrive in soils rich with granitic rock and quartz, adding a distinctive mineral complexity to the wines.

The Eden Valley, part of the famous Barossa region, benefits from a higher elevation and cooler climate compared to the Barossa Valley floor. This unique geography lends a refined structure and distinct minerality to the wines.

The 2019 Stonegarden Shiraz, crafted by Rockford winemaker Ben Radford, demonstrates his broad experience and deep roots in the Barossa wine region. The wine is aged in 25% new oak, adding layers of flavour while allowing the fruit characteristics to shine through. The end result is a Shiraz that perfectly captures the Stonegarden vineyard's tradition and distinguishing characteristics.

Cork Tasting Notes

The 2019 Stonegarden Shiraz has a bright and nuanced profile. On the nose, it has a fragrance of black cherries, plums, and faint floral notes, interwoven with touches of spice and earthiness. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with layers of ripe blackberry, black cherry, and plum flavours accented by notes of dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla from oak ageing. This Shiraz has well-balanced acidity and delicate tannin structure, resulting in a smooth and lingering finish.

 

Critic Review

Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Vines planted in 1858 and the 1940s with 25% new oak. Sweet black fruit, truffle, dried mint, sage, dark soy sauce. It’s thick and sweet and savoury, with a mass of fine-grained tannin, a little warming alcohol, a whole lot of flavour, coffee bean and saline character, with a rich and sooty tannin finish of excellent length. It’s very bold and lavish, sticky tannin to close, and ginger biscuits. Old vine power, saline and savoury, No prisoners.
