Winemaker Notes

The wine was fermented in stainless steel, then transferred to seasoned French and American barrels for 12 months. About 20% of the wine remained in stainless steel for the duration of its maturation. The components for the Stonehorse GSM are chosen for their riper fruity qualities and softer texture and mouth feel.

45% Grenache, 44% Shiraz and Mourvedre from estate vineyards that range from 20-45 years in aged. The wine is matured for 12 months in seasoned French oak.

Entry displays mulberries, blackberries and plum fruit characters with fine tannin and tasty acidity. As the wine moves through the palate, the mouth feel widens and becomes quite savory. The palate is rich and smooth with good length. The aftertaste is very Mourvedre with a strong flavor of dark chocolate. Grenache contributes soft aromatics and flavors. Shiraz adds structure and a bit of spice, and the Mourvedre provides breadth and depth.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Stonehorse GSM is composed of 45% Grenache, 44% Shiraz, and 11% Mourvedre and was aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an attractive nose of cedar, spice box, earth notes, and black cherry. This leads to a forward, easygoing wine with savory red and blue fruit flavors, plenty of spice, and a silky finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next eight years.

Smooth and velvety, with dusky tobacco nuances to the ripe blackberry and spice flavors, gliding nicely on a sleek frame. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2016. 10,000 cases made

Kaesler
Kaesler is a privately owned wine company that produces estate grown wines from vineyards as old as 1893. The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840's. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines. Today Kaesler wines are made from these ancient, dry grown vineyards, by the third owners of this magnificent property.
