About The Wine
The Steven Vineyard Shiraz is one of Mike De Iuliis' pride and joys.
This historic vineyard site was planted back in 1968 on the famous red soils that produce some of the Hunter's most iconic red wines. With complete respect for the vineyard, Mike handles this gently all the way to bottle hoping to showcase the exquisite medium-bodied Shiraz that this vineyard produces. Oak is used judiciously, fruit quality placed front and centre for all to see.
It's a wine that's ready to drink now but will continue to evolve for up to a decade in the cellar.
About De Iuliis
De Iuliis - pronounced [de uli ~ iss] - are one of the brightest stars from the Hunter Valley.
Owners Joss and Anna De luliis first planted vines on their estate in the famous Lovedale sub-region back in 1990, but it wasn’t until their son Mike got involved after graduating from the world-renowned Roseworthy campus (Adelaide University) in 1999 that things really took off.
Today Mike crafts an excellent array of site-specific wines that are a very good modern representation of what the Hunter Valley has to offer.
