Hayes Family Wines Stone Well Shiraz 2022


A blend of Block 1 and Block 9 from the Hayes Family Wines certified organic Stone Well vineyards, these two blocks sit less than 50 metres apart but the difference each parcel brings to the blend is most interesting. Quite simply, it's a lovely drink.

The vines were planted in the 1940s and the dominance from the Block 1 is telling with its vines feeding off more topsoil and a sandstone base as opposed to Block 9 which has no topsoil and gravelly loam over white clay.

Ribbons of silky fruit roll out the welcome mat. It's one of those wines you can't help but keep sipping and it urges you to sit up and take notice. It sees a small portion of new French oak for 20 months. 

Blackberries and juicy blueberries fold into one another with dark chocolate and puffs of earthiness. It slowly dries out with an array of soft spices etched into the fabric. The acid is balanced but the juicy fruit is fabulous as it whispers calling you back time and again. Big love. Give me another glass, please.

Drink to ten years+
