Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2015) - 92 pts

Drawn from a vineyard planted in 1919 within the Light Pass subregion, the 2015 Steeple Vineyard Shiraz aged entirely in French oak. A powerful but refined and elegant expression of Barossa Valley Shiraz, it's medium to full-bodied and boasts a concentrated aroma and flavors of cedar, ground cinnamon and clove, dark berries and plums, all underscored by a clean loaminess and fine-grained tannins on a tart, lingering finish. It should drink well for at least a decade.


James Suckling (2015) - 93 pts

A very classically styled Barossa shiraz with bold red plums, raspberries and smoked meat, leading to a palate that has a deep, fine and smooth texture of fine, silky tannins and a supple build to the chocolate-laced finish. Drink or hold.


Decanter (2015) - 93 pts

This vineyard in Light Pass was planted in 1919 on well-drained red brown loam. Aged in French oak barriques (19% new), this smooth, elegant Shiraz reveals anise-inflected sweet plum, crushed raspberry, blackberry and orange blossom aromas and flavours. Creamy, chocolate oak, immersive acidity and fine-grained tannins accentuate the seamlessness of delivery. Lingering anise, liquorice spice and an bloody ironstone tang to the finish.
