Sommelier's Notes

The third in the series of labels by renowned South Australian artist Tom Gleghorn, the 'Stoneflower' painting depicts the magnificent Australian outback landscape where spectacular wildflowers grow in abundance following seasonal rains.


Tom Gleghorn was Reillys' artist in residence during the 2010 vintage and has previously allowed the use of two original paintings being 'The Dancer' and 'Epitaph' on our most premium wines.


This traditional Bordeaux style wine has 90% Merlot expertly blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the two vineyard sites located just metres apart in Watervale.


The grapes were hand-picked from very low yielding vineyards at approximately 0.5T per acre, and crushed within hours of picking at our nearby winery. Traditional winemaking methods of prolonged cold soaking, open fermentation and hand plunging have been used to extract and retain the delicate fruit flavours.


The two parcels are matured separately in 2/3 new French oak hogsheads for 30 months prior to being blended to create this perfectly balance wine.


This first vintage release of ‘Stoneflower’ is the third label in the Tom Gleghorn series of labels exclusive to Reillys Wines, with each bottle being individually numbered. Renowned South Australian artist Tom Gleghorn created this painting which depicts the magnificent Australian outback landscape where spectacular wild flowers grow in abundance following seasonal rains.


RCV wines are limited release and are only created when the vintage is of particularly high quality. 


Cellar to 2030.
