About The Wine
"The Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz epitomises the philosophy of Powell & Son: to marry the greatness of the Barossa and Eden Valleys." so say the Powells.
This wine is made from excellent old vine material and made in a classic, heroic SA Shiraz style. The 2017 vintage of this Shiraz is smooth and seductive enough to drink now if you enjoy the richer style of Shiraz from these regions yet is imbued with the structure to cellar impeccably for a decade or more. The fruit is farmed and cared for every step of the way by the Father/Son team. Oak present and well accounted for.
This is the very model of a 'classic' Shiraz from these famous red wine regions. An 'old school' style done with class.
About Powell & Son
Powell & Son is a joint operation between father and son team, David and Callum Powell.
David was the spearhead behind the Torbreck juggernaut that took the world by storm in the 1990s. After leaving the Torbreck name behind, David and Callum partnered up to establish their own small operation focused around expressing some of the Barossa and Eden Valley's most precious vineyards.
With his decades-long relationships with these Barossa Valley growers as the foundation of the project, David has taken a step back in terms of the winemaking. It's now up to Callum to do the heavy lifting in the cellar, bringing these powerhouse expressions of Barossa Valley reds to life and writing the next chapter in the story of the Powell family and their beloved Barossa Valley.
