de Iuliis Steven Vineyard Shiraz 2011

The 2011 rains which wrecked havoc in most regions around Australia seemed to miss the Hunter Valley which resulted in some great reds coming from this vintage. A superb example of what the Hunter offers the wine world is right here.
This is something special.

Bright red fruits highlight a vibrant and complex bouquet. A good whiff of cloves and earth. Nice!

Perfectly weighted fruit entwined with spice which is soft, supple and delicate. All capped off with a moreish length, wow!

Hunter wines don't get as much push as many other regions around the country, and if ever you needed to be convinced, now is the time. This scooped the pool at the Hunter Valley Wine Show with no less than four trophies! Easy to see how. 'nuff said!

Available cellar door, mail order and at selected retailers. Do it!
