Redstone shiraz takes its name from the red coloured ironstone that is part of the old soils at Coriole. This stone is also used in the original buildings that date from 1860.
The wine is made from a blend of different sub regions of McLaren Vale, Blewitt Springs, Willunga as well as the Coriole vineyard in the Seaview sub-region.
Tasting Note: Redstone Shiraz 2006
The wine is crimson-black in colour, with ruby red tints.On opening, the nose suggests a wine more about fruit and florals than spice and pepper, although there are some notes of leather and caraway. A little air sees black cherry and plum emerge.
The palate is generous, soft and rich - but not overly ripe, with plummy flavours dominant. The finish is well balanced giving a wine that is excellent for current drinking
