Aroma: The Steinert's perfume is beautifully complex, displaying dried herbs and spices, lifted florals, dark cherries, red currants, charcuterie meats and smoked wood. Flavor: Its palate is supple but refined, with a firm backbone of fine grained tannins providing the framework for a kaleidoscope of flavours. It sings with dark fruits accompanied by thyme, lavender, cedar and cloves, finishing with a crescendo of soft, powdery tannins. The Steinert Shiraz is the epitome of the beauty and grace of the Eden Valley.

Jeb Dunnuckoming 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!

Wine AdvocatePriced in the same ballpark as another Eden Valley Shiraz icon, the Powells' 2016 Steinert Shiraz deserves to be mentioned in that same class. Sourced from the cooler Flaxman Valley portion of the region from vines more than 120 years old, it boasts complex aromas of garrigue, baking spices, black cherries and raspberries. It's full-bodied, creamy-textured and rich, with echoes of red fruit and wet stone on the nearly endless finish.

Wine SpectatorDense but supple, giving an air of elegance to the mix of gingerbread, fresh loam, cedar and espresso flavors, with a toasted chestnut accent to the core of dark fruit. Polished and refined, lingering effortlessly. Drink now through 2028. 150 cases made.
