The Steinert’s perfume is beautifully complex, displaying spices, lifted florals, dark cherries, red currants and smoked wood. Its palate is supple but refined, with a firm backbone of fine grained tannins providing the framework for a kaleidoscope of dark fruit flavours. It is the epitome of the beauty and grace of the Eden Valley with fruit sourced from 120+year old vines.

Powell & Son
Powell & Son is a relatively new wine brand and is the brain child of a man with an incredible reputation – Dave Powell.

Subsequently, Dave was able to establish Torbreck. It soon became a cult winery from the Barossa Valley, especially in international circles.
Dave Powell has now partnered with his son Callum on this new venture. Powell & Son are now crafting exceptional wines from premium vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valley, Australia. They employ traditional, minimalist wine making techniques. The inspiration for this style of wine making has its roots in France’s Rhone Valley.

Great wine begin in the vineyard is the philosophy that Powell & Son has been built on. The wines all speak of the place where grown. Powell & Son Steinert Shiraz is therefore no exception.
