Stonyridge Larose | 2018
Stonyridge Vineyard was conceived and operated with the sole intention of making world-class Bordeaux-style red wine. This classic Cabernet-dominant blend is named Larose as a tribute to the rose, the most aromatic, colourful, intense, and beautiful of all flowers.
The vineyard site was chosen specifically to produce this style of wine. The gentle north-facing slopes of the vineyard are sheltered from the cold southwesterly winds by the ridge which gives the vineyard its name. Summer temperatures regularly reach over 30 â€š Â°C with the highest temperature being 36 â€š Â°C. Combined with north-facing rows and excellent viticulture, the grapes achieve perfect ripeness in normal years.
