Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) This single vineyard originates from the rockiest soil on the estate, with resultant struggling vines and huge concentration. Brilliant greenish in appearance, this is a dramatic wine full of ripe red peppers and passion fruit. It will mature to perfection within one year, into flavours of mineral and flint (gun smoke).

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2015 Vintage) Life from Stone derives its name from the incredibly rocky soils in which it is grown. Every year the vineyard battles against nature in order to produce highly concentrated, powerful wines with a flinty, mineral character true to the quartz rock in which it is grown. Monumental human effort was required to plant the vines implements destroyed, and, in the case of the older vineyards, dynamite deployed.
