The Barossa Magazine Spring Reviews
By Tyson Stelzer
2019 Steading Blanc
Hands-down the best Roussanne Marsanne Viognier blend I’ve ever tasted, a wine of spectacular line and length, with a definition like nothing else. It’s floral, spicy and radiantly fresh, with a core of varietal personality of citrus, stone fruits and spice, impeccably strung together with carefully tuned phenolics and bright acid line
A quintessential RunRig, with slightly larger than life intensity on every level, fantastic density of inky fruit met equally with oak, alcohol, tannins, and acidity. The cool definition of 2017 defines a great tension, structure and grip to a finish of impressive ripeness. One of the best RunRigs to date.
2018 Hillside Vineyard Grenache
The essence of Grenache, built on definitive rhubarb, raspberry and strawberry, with creamy texture, thanks to a warmer site and soft, limestone soils. Its terroir infuses it with lifted rose petal perfume, holding with outstanding line and length. A gorgeous Grenache, ready to drink now.
