Stonehouse Neldner Vineyard Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020

$150.00
Handpicked grapes from an 80-year-old contoured vineyard in Gomersal. Long slow fermentation including 10% whole bunch over 10 days before basket pressing into 30% new French and 70% older oak. A spicy and brightly fruited nose leads to a palate with exceptional concentration and structure. Red fruits, black fruits, compote, coffee grounds, plum, star anise, cocoa powder, black tea and fine, powdery tannins to finish. Really beautifully balanced.

While his family owned a winery and vineyard in a cooler section of the Fleurieu Peninsula, winemaker Tom White was always driven to make richer full bodied wines and therefore gravitated to the Barossa Valley. Tom has old vines in the prized Marananga district and also uses old vine fruit from Greenock. Oak used is French, very high quality and sparingly applied to allow fruit to shine, The Grapes are handpicked, ferments hand plunged and the blending process undertaken with great care.
