A cool climate Cabernet wine of impeccable integration and exceptional balance. Sourced from the Trevor's Cabernet Block on Fowles Plunkett Whitegate Vineyard in Strathbogie Ranges, where harvesting generally occurs from late February through to early May. The sandy loam soils on the elevated and undulating, gently inclined site stimulate the vines into yielding the most intensely flavoured Cabernet berries with pungent aromatics and toothsome tannins. A very well balanced, full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with a long flavourful finish.
Following harvest and the crush, fruit is inoculated through the action of Saccharomyces cerevisiae AWRI 796, a relatively neutral yeast originally isolated in South Africa, it allows the richness of Cabernet Sauvignon to express itself. AWRI 796 produces above average amounts of glycerol, which contributes a sweetness and roundness to the mouthfeel. Parcels were treated to vinification in high tech sweep-arm fermenters to maximise colour and flavour intensity. Ferments were kept at a temperature controlled 25˚C to preserve primary fruit flavours. Stone Dwellers is matured in small one year old, mostly French oak barrels with a smaller percentage of American oaks.
TASTING NOTES
Dense, plum red color. The vibrant, varietal bouquet offers chocolate aromas with oak and spice. The palate shows dark fruits and chocolate, supported by a solid structure that finishes long and lingering. Stone Dweller carries no residual sugar, whilst delivering a good balance of alcohol, meaty tannins and refreshing acid. To accompany oxtail pie with roast chestnut and red wine jus.

About the Fowles Winery
Fowles were the first Victorian winery ever to win Great Australian Shiraz Challenge trophy for the finest Shiraz in the land
The Fowles family remain very much at home amongst the rugged Strathbogie Ranges, their wineworks were established astride a striking granite massif that rises to over five hundred metres above sea level. They are surrounded by a multitude of dramatic granite outcrops that burst from the surface of these ancient highlands. The region provide great conditions in which to grow fruit: In the coolness of spring the vines produce only small berries and the ensuing low rainfall and the intense summer sun gives rise to a fruit that is dense in colour and flavour. Energetic and enterprising, they continue to break new ground by bringing the Strathbogie Ranges message in a bottle to the world. Fowles»
