96 Points - James Suckling
Stonewell’s limestone-base soils are the pricing influence behind this shiraz, with quite spicy blackberry and dark plum, as well as graphite and spiced chocolate. The palate holds a seamlessly glossy texture and manages to deliver ultra-luscious fruit in an elegantly contained mode. So long and smooth and bathed in blackberries and blueberries. Drink or hold for a decade or longer.

Head Wines draws from 10 top Shiraz vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. ‘The Blonde’ vineyard is consistently in the top few performing vineyards each year and has done so for 15 years. The Shiraz (Clone 1654) vineyard is planted in the ‘Stone Well’ parish on a small 280m rise below the western ridge of the Barossa Valley comprising a myriad of soil and rock types including red clays, sands and a deep limestone base (blonde in colour). It is these unique rocks and soils that help produce riper, plumper, sweeter fruited wine than surrounding vineyards, while still retaining acidity due to the higher limestone content of the soil.
