The Shiraz produced from this vineyard is the epitome of the world renowned style that is Barossa Valley Shiraz. The wine is rich and generous in fruit: plum, dark cherry and blackberry. It provides a deep, dark svelte tannin backbone and mouth-coating palate. The wine stands alone in intensity, opulence and concentration of flavour. It is a style unique to the world of wine - the style that put Australian wine in the realm of global fine wine - and a style which we are truly proud to be its upholders of.

Jeb DunnuckAnother single vineyard masterpiece is the 2016 Shiraz Kraehe which comes from Maranaga region of the Barossa which is a slightly drier region, and this particular vineyard consists of red, iron-laced soils and vines upwards of 100 years in age. It has a more flamboyant, sexy style compared to the Steinert release and boasts a huge bouquet of black currants, raspberries, Asian spices, beef blood, and subtle graphite and classy oak. It’s deep, layered, and seamless on the palate, with full-bodied richness, plenty of underlying structure, awesome purity, and a singular character. This is another magical wine from this team of David Powell and his son Callum. It’s going to evolve for 20+ years as well.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Kraehe Shiraz comes from 110-year-old vines in Marananga. Like the Steinert Shiraz, it's aged in new barriques from Dominique Laurent, which give the wine attractive hints of pencil shavings and dried spices. On the palate, it's all blackberries and spice, full-bodied, plush and silky, with a never-ending finish and an extraordinary sense of grace and elegance.
