The story of the Rufus Stone dates back almost 1,000 years to medieval England. King William II, known as Rufus, is believed to have been killed by an errant arrow fired by Sir Walter Tyrrell – an ancestor of the Tyrrell family. Today, the site of this infamous incident is marked by the Rufus Stone. Since 1997, their top non-Hunter red wines have been named in honour of Tyrrell’s historical association with the Rufus Stone.
This is a full-bodied wine that offers intense aromas of black plum and white pepper. Spicy French oak supports and guides the impressive volume of fruit. Dark-chocolate, ripe-mulberry and plum flavours linger on the palate, supported by fine-grain tannins.
