SKU: YALSTESHZ16
The Yalumba Steeple Vineyard Shiraz 2016 offers aromas of blueberries and plums leading into a very inviting red spices, cranberries and pomegranate. Drawn from a distinguished vineyard in the hamlet of Light Pass, The Steeple Shiraz is a true single vineyard wine. This wine is from biodynamically grown, low yielding centenarian vines planted in 1919. In the shadow of the Light Pass Immanuel Lutheran Church steeple, the roots of these old vines run deep into the ancient Barossa soils, yielding intensely flavoured Shiraz grapes to create a wine of richness, texture, concentration and length.

”A shiraz of corpulence: sapid dark fruit notes, salubrious coffee bean oak and the density of sheer grape extract. This doesn't pretend to be anything cool. Power and presence. And yet the wine is not heavy. Fresh. Uncanny. Anise and tapenade layered across a long finish. Will age well in a new-meets old-school sort of way.”
