The NERO Old Vines Shiraz

The NERO Old Vines Shiraz

Peter Papakinitas believes that life is too short to drink bad wine.

This belief is what drives Peter to produce world-class wine such as the Stonefish NERO Old Vines Shiraz 2015. This superb dry red wine has distinctive earthen flavours marked by velvety tannins. Aged for eighteen months in 50% French hogshead and 50% seasoned oak, this dark-coloured wine imparts a beautifully lifted spicy note. What also makes this wine even more elegant is the fact that it is produced from 70 year old vines from Barossa Valley at Ebenezer in the Barossa’s North, Australia’s very own wine country.

Stonefish NERO Old Vines Shiraz boasts of balance, elegance and magnificence in taste, structure and flavour.  Whenever you drink this wine, remember the humble beginnings and where it is today, from the Opera House at Opera Kitchen to China.

The wines of the Stonefish label embody the richness and remarkable quality of Australian harvests for people who love the relaxed Australian lifestyle. To order from the Stonefish range, visit the Red White + Bubbles online store

The Story Behind The Stonefish

The Story Behind The Stonefish

Usually, the best ideas are scribbled on paper napkins.

This was the humble beginning of the Stonefish, Peter Papanikitas’ brainchild and lifelong dream. In 1999, Peter doodled the infamous “SToNeFIsH” label on a napkin and since then, the wine has grown into an international label served in some of the best establishments and hotels all over Asia.

More than this, Stonefish is not just a wine brand; it is also a true reflection of a man’s dedication and hard work.

For over thirty years now, Peter Papakinitas has been involved in various facets of the wine industry. He has worked with well-known companies that include Penfolds, Lindemans, Leo Buring and Cinzano. Peter gained experience in worldwide sales and marketing. Stonefish was established in year 2000 in Australia with vineyards in the Barossa Valley and Margaret River until it became the international brand that it is today.

For James Halliday of Australian Wine Companion, Peter Papakinitas is a legend. His great success story will always be traced back to that label doodled on a napkin at Lagoon Restaurant.  From humble beginnings, a man rose to fame because of his commitment to giving the world some of the best tasting wines.

Proud to Sponsor the Cronulla Sharks

Stonefish Wines have been a proud sponsor of the Cronulla Sharks for the last three years.

The idea came to Peter Papanikitas aka Mr Stonefish whilst watching a home game who saw the opportunity to get behind the local NRL team and provide high quality wine to the Cronulla-Sutherland Leagues Club. “I am really excited for the 2016 NRL Premiership Grand Final this weekend” he says.

Operated locally in the Shire by a dedicated and passionate team, Stonefish Wines are ecstatic to see the Sharkies play in the Grand Final. “Patrons at the Cronulla-Sutherland Leaques Club also can enjoy a glass of award winning wine while watching the Game this weekend” says Mr Stonefish.

Product Review Rating
✪ 2014 Stonefish Reserve Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon
Margaret River is the go-to region par excellence if you are prepared to pay for quality at a win-win price, and to do so over time. This has it all: bell-clear blackcurrant fruit, black olive and dried herbs the tannins round and ripe.
✪ 2013 Stonefish ICON Barossa Valley Shiraz
“An ultra full-bodied shiraz, hand-picked, open-fermented and matured in new and used French oak. The masses of savoury extract is so intense it approaches (although ultimately falls short of) outright bitterness.”

2013 Stonefish Reserve Barossa Valley Shiraz
“This is full-bodied, with plenty of fruit, but sandblasted by the amount of oak. Those who love oak should try it out ? they may love it.”

2012 Stonefish ‘Raffaele’ Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon
The first signs of moving out of primary into secondary mode look as if they may soon gather pace; there are some earthy/briary notes (and violets) joining the fruit.”
