2016 Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone represents the pinnacle of our red wine production and is the most authentic expression of Hazel's Vineyard. Biodynamic farming, meticulous vineyard management and the utmost attention to detail in the winery all contribute to a wine that speaks of our land. This wine is crafted from select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
"Cabernet sauvignon 36%, malbec 27%, merlot 27%, petit verdot 10%, all Hazel's Vineyard. It sits on the bolder side of medium weight, but it's superbly elegant and superbly persistent. It presents a velvety flow of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, gravel, peppercorn and wood smoke-like flavours and, while the pull of tannin is strong, the flow of fruit will not be halted. Sensational example of a Margaret River cabernet blend."
Rating 97/100 and rated amongst the Best of the Best, James Halliday Wine Companion 2020 (Campbell Mattinson)
"Deepish red colour with a tint of purple. The bouquet is chocolaty and cedary, Bordelais oak-infused complexity, the palate full-bodied and stately, with good density and drying, savoury tannins. A marvellously elegant, complex, multi-dimensional red, cabernet-driven and follows the Bordeaux model closely. A terrific glass of wine now and for many years hence."
Score 96/100 The Real Review, Huon Hooke
"This blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec, merlot and petit verdot has rich, earthy style with ripe dark berries and plums on offer, as well as dark spices, graphite and forest wood. The medium-bodied palate has an appealing, elegant feel and red-plum and berry flavors to close."
