Superb colour saturation possessing a dense inky black core with a deep bright dark red black hue. Intense yet still somewhat restrained aromatics of ripe black cherries, liquorice, blackberries and dark plum rise from the glass followed by toasty vanillin cedar, hints of mocha and spicy scorched earth. Rich, powerful and opulently textured yet retaining a sense of freshness the palate is blessed with luscious black fruits including blackberries, liquorice and black cherries over some dark plum, vanillin cedar, scorched earth and spice. The hefty fruit cascading over a sturdy tannin and vibrant acid framework. Long powerful aftertaste of dark plums, blackberries, liquorice, vanillin cedar and spice.

Other Reviews….
Coming from a small (two=hectare) single vineyard with more than 120-year-old vines in the Flaxman Valley area of Barossa’s cooler Eden Valley, the 2015 Steinert Shiraz offers a deep garnet-purple color and very pretty red currants, black cherries and black raspberries notes, with touches of pepper and spice box plus fleeting wafts of roses. The medium to full-bodied palate is seriously intense, delivering ripe red berry and spice layers with a very long, perfumed finish. 200 cases were made. Drink 2018-2038.
