Hunter Valley (Steven Vineyard)
Deep crimson with purple hues.
Intense spice and pepper on the nose combine with rich berry aromas.
Rich fruit flavours of black cherries combine with firm tannins to provide a medium-bodied style with great length on the palate. A well-balanced wine, consistent with the classic Hunter Valley style of Shiraz.
Careful cellaring will see this wine develop beautifully over the next 5 – 15 years.
The historic Steven vineyard was planted in 1968. Ever since the red volcanic soils have produced some of the Hunter Valley’s most outstanding wines. This 2017 vintage is a classic Hunter Valley shiraz, with great fruit, spice and elegance. A medium bodied shiraz that will drink well as a young wine but will reward those patient enough to stash it away for another 10 years.
