Yalumba Steeple Vineyard Shiraz 2016

The Steeple Shiraz 2016 showcases the aromatic
beauty of this vintage. The nose is 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.

Yalumba Steeple Vineyard Shiraz 2016

Drawn from a distinguished vineyard in the hamlet of Light Pass, The Steeple
Shiraz is a true single vineyard wine. This wine is from biodynamically 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.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS
A moderate winter was followed by a warm, dry
spring and start to summer. At the end of January
approximately 25mm of rain fell which gave the
vines the drink they needed to finish off ripening
the grapes. Warm days during summer and autumn
were mediated by cool nights, leading to great
acidity retention and pristine fruit flavours.
TERRIOR/PROVENANCE/REGION
Sourced from Yalumba’s Steeple vineyard at Light
Pass on the Barossa Valley floor, this old block
of Shiraz was planted in 1919 on its own roots in
fine, sandy loam, red-brown earth. This soil is well
drained and consists of a marked contrast in texture
between the surface soil and the subsoil. The 1.34
hectare vineyard sits at an elevation of 280 metres
above sea level. The old vines, planted at 3 metre
spacings in north south rows are trained with 4 rods
on two wires which ensures an even distribution of
bunches along the trellis.
