SF 2015 Nero Shiraz

This superb dry red wine has distinctive earthen flavours marked by velvety tannins. Aged for eighteen months in 50% French hogshead and 50% seasoned oak, this dark-coloured wine imparts a beautifully lifted spicy note. What also makes this wine even more elegant is the fact that it is produced from 70 year old vines from Barossa Valley at Ebenezer in the Barossa’s North, Australia’s very own wine country.

Region

Margaret River

Our home. Girt by sea and rolling hills, Margeret River drew us across the land in search of wines with purity of fruit character, elegance and substance. A stunningly diverse region, we chose the central Wilyabrup district for our vineyard as it is here that the most complex yet balanced wines are produced. Our vines stand proudly nestled amongst some of the biggest names in wine, producing stunning fruit for the Stonefish Varietal series wines. We can’t wait to see you at the Stonefish Margaret River Cellar Door soon.

History

The Margaret River is a wine region in the southwest corner of Western Australia, known to the locals as ‘The Cape Region’. Its vineyards produce internationally acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs and other varietals. While the region produces less than 3 percent of Australia’s wine, it accounts for more than a fifth of its premium wine.

The Margaret River was scientifically identified by Dr John Gladstone (UCLA) in 1969 as being the most perfect area in the world to grow premium wine grapes. The first plantings were established in 1967/68 and now accounts for 1.5% of the national production and 23% of Australia’s premium bottled wine market in sale.

Yielding

The region is very low yielding and the vintage each year will vary between 2 and a half tonnes to the acre and 4 tonnes depending on variety and fruit requirements.

Fruit costs in the region are significantly higher than in other parts of Australia due to low yielding vines.

Flavour concentration is distinctly evident when tasting wines from the region.

Awards

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – 2020 Edition

2015 Stonefish Nero Old Vines Barossa Valley Shiraz – 95 Points
“50yo vines, hand-picked, open-fermented, 6 days on skins, matured in French oak (30% new) for 18 months. Rich and luscious, with soft tannins and very good balance. Ready to enjoy now, but will live for 10+ years.”

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion – 2018 Edition

2013 Nero Barossa Valley Shiraz – 91 Points
This is so concentrated and pitch-black, just a rim of garnet; apparently old vines are the source – the only mention is some up to 70 years old, so that’s not really helpful. Big fruit, big palate, big tannins and lashings of oak. The style has its fans and won’t disappoint.
