The Barossa Valley Shiraz is generous in its dark plum and blackberry fruits. Aromas: Notes of tar and graphite follow with hints of dried herbs and tobacco. Palate: Rounded and supple with dark fruits and a supple tannin backbone which brings with it coffee ground and cedar flavors. The wine finishes with generous dark fruits and white pepper spice.

oming from very old, dry farmed vines planted in a cooler part of the Barossa (Eden Valley), the 2016 Shiraz Steinert is a legendary wine in the making. This beauty boasts a deep ruby/purple-hued color as well as a cool-climate-like array of red and black currants, dried flowers, incense, salted meats, and exotic, peppery spices. Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, this is a wine of incredible richness and depth paired with remarkable elegance and purity. With integrated acidity, a sensational texture, and a finish that won’t quit, this tour de force in Shiraz can be enjoyed today or cellared for two decades. Bravo!

Packs a wallop, with intense blackberry, plum and licorice notes, set on a dense body, with sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and black pepper and Earl Grey tea details on the finish. Great focus. Drink now through 2028. 2,000 cases made.

In case you thought the Powells were only making tiny quantities of unaffordable wines, the 2016 Barossa Valley Shiraz retails for a reasonable $30 per bottle. From mostly 20- to 30-year-old vines in Marananga, it's aged in foudre. It's medium to full-bodied, with tar and black olive notes on opening that blossom into cherry and blueberry fruit after decanting. The tannins are fine, lingering on the silky finish.
