97pts James Halliday
Shiraz has delivered an exciting array of styles from vibrant flavoursome wines through to rich and complex styles with great texture and cellaring potential.
The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is about focusing on the fruit and its provenance. Simply minimal intervention and maximum attention. We tailor our winemaking to the individual parcel using the years of accumulated knowledge we have of these vineyards and their individual characters. We are looking for balance and flavour integration in the wines before we blend them together to create the Blackwell Barossa Shiraz style.
The full bodied palate has blackforest cake flavours and textures of prodigious intensity and persistence. It is opulent, balanced with a certain vitality that will see the wine age gracefully over the years.
