James Halliday 96 Points!


"A 28.5% each of cabernet, malbec, merlot and 14.5% petit verdot. Deep purple-crimson; this is a wine of awesome proportions, yet is so well balanced there are moments of elegance, and the blackcurrant, blueberry and blackberry fruit flavours will feed off the reservoir of tannins as the wine slowly wends its way to full maturity decades hence."


- James Halliday


"The fruit for our Rolling Stone is sourced from the most outstanding parcels from our Hazel’s Vineyard. The nose is a display of fragrant violets, black currants and blueberry confectionery complemented by savoury notes of black olive tapenade, tobacco leaf and dusty dark chocolate. The palate is opulent yet refined combining intense dark fruits and sweet spice with firm gravelly tannins providing impressive length.  


 Made in very limited quantities, this wine truly expresses the essence of this remarkable southern Margaret River site."
