  • Tasting notes

    The Heart Stone Vineyard is a small 7 acre vineyard planted on a gentle South slope of limestone and shale. With 8 different clones of Syrah, 4 of Grenache and 1 of Mourvedre, Saxum aims to produce a wine that is both compelling and complex.

This wine is age with very little new oak.
