Nine Stones McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016


Nine Stones is a secondary brand of Calabria Family Wines, a third generation winegrowing business based in the Griffith region of the Riverina. While the family espouse the quality of the Riverina, they also source fruit from other regions to make award-winning wines as well as bottlings that offer value, such as the Nine Stones brand. Here, I review the 2016 Nine Stones McLaren Vale Shiraz which I looked at late last year (review not published). Then it showed some sulphide reduction which distracted from the fruit. With just over a half year of time in the bottle, it has blossomed in richness and weight, and the reduction practically does not show at all. This is a classic example of allowing young wines to settle to show their potential. www.calabriawines.com.au The Calabria wines are imported and distributed in New Zealand by Paul Wai Poi of CPP Wines, Tel: 09 360-2854 or Email: [email protected]
