Steeple Jack Shiraz 2019 (6 x 750mL) Currency Creek, SA

Description:

Late winter rainfall assisted with replenishing poor soil moisture levels prior to budburst, but variable weather early in the season impacted on the timing of bud burst and led to the first challenge to even-ness of shoot length and subsequently to fruit maturation.

Flowering commenced with ideal conditions but several weeks of inclement weather events at this critical time deferred the later flowering vines even further, creating a greater difference between the timing of the early and late flowers which followed through to veraison. The season progressed adequately with little rainfall and low disease pressure until late January. The lack of rainfall late in the season allowed the fruit to be hung out until flavour ripeness caught up to physiological maturity. The resulting wines are very strong with great colour and intensity, although yields are much reduced.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

In true Steeple Jack tradition, this shiraz is full of character. Blackberries, stewed fruits, hints of mocha and lifted vanillin on the nose, a full soft fruit driven palate followed by a touch of spice and white pepper with a lingering smooth finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Shaw family has over 35 years of wine industry experience as a vigneron and vintner. Their dream for family involvement inspired Richard and Marie to expand from 5 acres to over 1,200 acres to become one of the largest owners of vineyards in the premium cool climate regions of McLaren Vale and Currency Creek in South Australia.

The Shaw family vision included producing high quality wine for the enjoyment of global wine connoisseurs. In the year 2000 the construction of their ultra modern, state-of-the-art winery was completed.

The wine is produced from grapes picked from the family vineyards and is produced at the Winery located in Currency Creek. Shaw Family Vintners have a distinguished range of labels comprised of Shaw Family Vintners, Stonemason, Steeple Jack and premium brands, Single Vineyard, Emetior and RMS.
