    Winemaker's Notes:

    The "Stonehorse" wines are vinified to make styles that emphasise fruit characteristics with complementary barrel maturation. The oak is used to support the palate with firm dignified structure, and spice the nose like truffles in pasta.

    The 2002 is purple with a dark centre and a youthful edge. Aromas are a wild concoction of black fruits and plums. Quite subtle but very complex. Long firm and ascertive. Dry powdery tannins, with sweet fruit overtones and tangy acid on the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2002 Shiraz Stonehorse (the least expensive of Kaesler’s Shiraz offerings) is spectacular. It is indicative of just how special this vintage is in the Barossa. It is a teeth-staining, mouth-filling, extremely concentrated Shiraz displaying a level of quality that makes the 2002 Bogan and 2002 Old Bastard’s potential quality level look scary. The inky purple-colored Stonehorse offers a great perfume, beautifully integrated wood, and sensational richness as well as length. A prodigious effort that easily conceals its 15.5% alcohol, it should drink well for 10-15 years.
