Drawn from a distinguished vineyard in the hamlet of Light Pass, The Steeple Shiraz is a true single vineyard wine. This wine is from bio dynamically 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. The Steeple Shiraz is a true single vineyard wine that continually showcases its Barossa provenance. The nose is with attractive perfumed aromas immersed in blueberries and plums leading into very inviting red spices, cranberries and pomegranate. Medium to full-bodied, it is generous with plump fruits and dark cherries. Textural, intriguing and velvety smooth. The growing season began with consistent winter rainfall. Spring remained warmer and drier than average and the vines were off to a healthy start. Smaller bunch and berry sizes have produced grapes of great aromatics and flavour. It was a long and relatively mild summer, with very few heat spikes and quite cool nights. These cool nights helped to retain the acidity and pristine fruit flavours in Shiraz wines.
