Fat Barrel Stone Forest Shiraz / Mourvedre 2020
“A harmonious red blend from Wellington, with rich fruit flavours and wonderful oak integration.”
Fat Barrel brings you wines that are crafted with care and dedication. “Stone Forest” wines honour the discovery of Paleolithic stone tools by South Africa’s vignerons among their forest vines. These tools are believed to be 2.5 million years old.
This juicy red blend exudes savoury spices from the Mourvedre which is wonderfully complimented by smoky notes from the Shiraz.
Both Shiraz and Mourvedre were fermented separately. The Shiraz spent 7 months on American oak staves whilst the Mourvedre was fermented for 4 months.
91% Shiraz, 9% Mourvedre
