Pow­ell & Son Stein­ert Shi­raz 2015

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

If there’s any­thing you should ex­pect from Dave Pow­ell, it would be straight talk. After os­ten­si­bly be­ing ousted from Tor­breck in 2013, which he founded, Pow­ell set up a new a ven­ture with his el­dest son Cal­lum who trained in Rhone. Stein­ert is their top sin­gle vine­yard bot­tling in Eden Val­ley, with his­toric dry-grown 120-year-old vines at 480m al­ti­tude that pro­duce in­tensely com­plex flavours. This is des­tined icon ter­ri­tory, with barely a mis­step from heady aro­mas to the volup­tuous yet firm frame­work of the palate, fi­nally fin­ish­ing with the lin­ger­ing traces of soft, dusty tan­nins. Ex­pect a cel­lar­ing win­dow of at least 20 years. $750 from Indigo Wine Co
