2015 Rolling Stone

2015 Rolling Stone

The fruit for our 2015 Rolling Stone is sourced from the most outstanding parcels from our Hazel’s Vineyard. The nose is a display of fragrant violets, black currants and blueberry confectionery complemented by savoury notes of black olive tapenade, tobacco leaf and dusty dark chocolate. The palate is opulent yet refined combining intense dark fruits and sweet spice with firm gravelly tannins providing impressive length.  

Made in very limited quantities, this wine truly expresses the essence of this remarkable southern Margaret River site.

Winemaking
Our best parcels of fruit were fermented in open stone fermenters with the use of indigenous yeasts. Some of the wines were left on skins post fermentation for several weeks to provide savouriness and structure to the blend, others were pressed earlier for freshness and aromatic lift. Each variety was kept separate and aged in the finest selection of French oak barrels for 18 months prior to bottling. The wine remains unfined and unfiltered.

James Halliday - 95 Points. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec, merlot and petit verdot from the Hazel Vineyard; essentially a barrel selection of the best of the Bordeaux varieties. It's not quite the finished article, but it has the components in the making for a complex and long-lived wine. The fruit has elegance and depth to go with it, the tannin ripe and persistent.
