The Steading Barossa Valley Grenache Blend 2021

A Barossa GSM. Took a while to balance out, but with some air the wine showed its elegance. I also learned that Mataro is the Spanish/Aussie name for mouvedre. 😎 🇦🇺 Bright Grenache in the foreground with a peppery undertone. Smooth and silky. Mellow tannins. — 2 months ago

Not up there with Torbreck, but still a worthwhile purchase.

The single vineyard wines begin with the 2007 Shiraz Barney s Block McMurtrie Road in McLaren Vale. It was aged in 50% new French oak for 20 months. Opaque purple-colored,

Really great. Love that it’s southern Rhone style with quite a few obscure varieties. — 2 months ago

The Steading Blanc Barossa Valley White Rhone Blend 2022

Aussie porch pounder
Suckling 94
The Roussanne was aged in stainless steel, while the Marsanne and Viognier aged on the fine lees for 8 months in a combination of seasoned and new French oak barriques.

Inspired by the rich, luscious and mineral scented dry whites of the Rhône Valley, The Steading - Blanc is sourced entirely from the Descendant Vineyard on Roennfeldt Road first planted in 1994 on the Torbreck estate. The ripe, fleshy, barrel fermented Viognier and Marsanne gives the palate a textural edge whilst the Roussanne contributes it’s more flinty and austere personality." - WINERY NOTES

The Factor Barossa Valley Shiraz 2002

Pedigreed and fresh. Mature but room to go. Blue fruit, some smoke and saline. High-wire balancing act. — 2 months ago

The Struie Barossa Valley Shiraz 2021

Concentrated extract. Nearly pitch black in the glass. Takes an hour to come to complete expression with layers of dark red fruit of cherry and plum soaked in spice. Remained very centered on the palette and settled in a complex, layered finish. Since we have been in Australia for more than six weeks I have to use the cricket lingo: this wine was all about ‘Lane and Length’. Much, much enjoyed it. Blew my head off. — 5 months ago

Old Vines Barossa Valley Grenache Blend 2018

A welcome departure from a focus on Bordeaux of late, this GSM from Barossa, despite being in the lower end of their range, is a gorgeous, powerful but quite pure wine with great complexity for this price point. The nose has southern Rhône personality mixed with Barossa weight, with steeped fruit, lavender, white pepper, a touch of iron. It has Port-like density on the palate, with flecks of liquorice and kirsch, is slightly hot even at 14.5% but otherwise a really solid wine! — 9 months ago
