The following syntax might be better:

ex:S1 a sh:Shape;
   sh:propValues (
     <http://a.example/p1>
     [ a sh:Shape ;
       sh:stem <http://a.example/v>
     ] ) .

or, in the current SHACL syntax:

ex:S1 a sh:Shape;
   sh:property
     [ a sh:Shape ;
       sh:predicate <http://a.example/p1> ;
       sh:stem <http://a.example/v>
     ].

I appears to me that this is equivalent to

ex:S1 a sh:Shape;
    sh:property
      [ a sh:Shape ;
        sh:predicate <http://a.example/p1> ;
        sh:nodeKind sh:IRI ;
        sh:pattern "^http://a.example/v"
      ].

It appears to me that this is equivalent to

ex:S1 a sh:Shape;
  sh:propValues ( <http://a.example/p1>
    [ a sh:Shape ;
      sh:nodeKind sh:IRI ;
      sh:pattern "^http://a.example/v" ;
      sh:not [ a sh:Shape ; sh:pattern "^http://a.example/v1" ] ;
      sh:not [ a sh:Shape ; sh:pattern "^http://a.example/v2" ] ;
      sh:not [ a sh:Shape ; sh:pattern "^http://a.example/v3" ]
    ] ) .

(because of the repeated sh:not the current syntax for this would be quite large).
