2016 The Kinnear

The Kinnear was the ship which brought Johann Stein to Australia on 23rd April, 1838, so it is appropriate that this be the name of our flagship wine.

The Kinnear is an icon of our family, a symbol of the great hardship and struggle of the past, and a celebration of our lives today.

The 2016 Robert Stein 'Kinnear' is 100% hand-picked Shiraz which was fermented in small open fermenters, and hand plunged several times daily. Matured in 40% new French Oak Hogsheads, and 60% in older American barriques, with only the best barrels included in the Kinnear. The resulting wine displays a strong bouquet of blackberry and earth, with a soft but pronounced tannin structure. This wine has not been fined or filtered and we recommend decanting before serving.

Only 1000 bottles were produced in 2016
