The Shiraz, Grenache and Touriga grapes employed in this blend are mostly sourced from vineyards in the southern region of the Barossa Valley, with red brown loam over shale soils that highlight fresh varietal characteristics. The varieties are crushed and fermented separately, with a portion of the Shiraz kept on the lees to add complexity and texture. The nose shows ripe red berry fruits and spice with floral notes; the palate exhibits bright red fruit, such as raspberry, supple tannins and notes of rose and spice.
Established in 1944 by the Lindner Family, St Hallett represents the very spirit and sould of winemaking in the Barossa. Over this time, it has grown and changed and reinvented itself, to achieve a rare distinction as one of Australia's most respected wine brands. From the beginning, St Hallett understood the importance of saving old vines and focusing on varieties that thrive in the Barossa region - particularly Shiraz. More than 70 years on from these humble beginnings, St Hallett has established a reputation for making wines with exceptional quality and character.
