Review: Fowles Wine – Stone Dwellers Shiraz (2013)

Stone Dwellers Shiraz from Fowles Wine

The Wine Review:

With the Dan Murphy’s monthly 2 for 1 special, I have been getting used to crowd pleasing, big and bold, value for money reds.
So I was quite surprised this month when a Victorian cool climate Shiraz (RRP $21.99, 2for1 works out to be $11 a bottle) showed up.

A: Cherry with a bit of red fruit influence. Pepper and kirsch

T: Tart cherry then moves in to savoury cured meat flavour and finishes on a clean blackberry note.
Tannins are nicely integrated in a medium bodied elegant style.

I found the initial cherry tartness confronting at first but after a bit of time in the glass it calmed down.

The barreling drop on a rollercoaster followed by the slow pull into the station as your adrenaline and breath return to normal.
