97Vinous / IWC

Sweet and deeply concentrated, offering palate-staining black and blue fruit, exotic spice and candied violet flavors that show superb definition and are supported by a spine of smoky minerality. For this wine's depth and power, it's almost shockingly graceful.

96The Wine Advocate

This 2017 Steinert Flaxman’s Shiraz is spicy and very long. The oak is still prominent, but the fruit has an opulence and plushness beneath it that shows the longevity of the wine. This has not reached its first peak yet. (September 2022)

93Wine Spectator

Toasted herb, chicory, green tea, tar and loamy earth notes mingle with muscular, sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and blueberry and blackberry flavors. Firms up on the finish but shows tremendous focus and concentration.

93James Suckling

Loads of cracked black pepper and green pepper character with some dried stem and black fruits. It’s full-bodied and tannin driven. Lots of cloves at the end, too.


Australia, South Australia, Eden Valley

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
