Shiraz "The Stocks"
The powerful, rich tannins of The Stocks will stand up well to rich dishes like Braised oxtail and Swiss Brown mushroom risoni with a seeded mustard butter and porcini jus Or just savour on its own at the end of a meal or with some fine selected cheeses.
Very soft and approachable in youth, with a long, silky-smooth finish. Under this soft exterior is a solid backbone of ripe, long layered grape and oak rounded tannins with no sharp edges. The Stocks single vineyard personality will grow through the initial primary fruit and vanillin oak flavours resulting in a complex and sleek demeanour. A powerful elegant wine which can cellar for over a decade.
This is a selection of the best barrels of shiraz from the century-old vines near the winery; the colour is good, the wine with a great array of spice, dark chocolate, black cherry and blackberry fruit. One of our favorites.
