2012 Kaesler Stonehorse GMS
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Juicy purple berries and exotic spices dance lightly all night on the palate while enjoying the company of short ribs, stews, barbecues or anything else involving red meats.
$22.49 as part of a mixed case.
"Garnet. The nose is bright focussed and appealing with blackcurrant, blackberries and fresh violets. Really elegant -- savoury notes, fine white pepper, fresh rhubarb and white nectarine characters with fine tannin and tangy acidity. A lovely length on the palate. A wine to enjoy in its youth, however, it will live happily for a further 10 years."
"80% Grenache, 17% Mourvedre, 3% Shiraz. Matured in 5 and 6 year old French oak barriques for 12 months. 14.5% alc."
"94 pts ... An 80/17/3% blend, fermented on skins for 7-10 days, then matured in used French barriques for 12 months. Has good colour; relatively early picking has invested the wine with spicy freshness and vibrant red fruits, way beyond most Barossa Valley blends of these varieties. Drink through 2022."

Sorry, sold out. '11 arriving shortly.
$25.9995 JH This wine is intense, like when you body surf and get munched by a wave only to pop up all triumphant and alive with your head spinning and a smile on your lips. Juicy red and purple berries, anise and cinnamon, acidity and tannins all surfing smoothly through to a long and happy finish.
